Underexposed President to Appear in Back-to-School Special

Thank goodness someone finally got around to giving Barack Obama some face time on television. You so rarely get a glimpse of the guy, you get the feeling he's camera shy or something.
President Barack Obama will appear in a back-to-school television special with singer Kelly Clarkson and basketball star LeBron James next month.

Obama is appearing in a 30-minute documentary that will air at 8 p.m. Sept. 8 on BET, MTV, VH1, CMT, Comedy Central, Spike TV and Nickelodeon, all of them Viacom networks. Obama also plans to deliver a back-to-school speech to the nation's students on the same day.
Viacom owns CBS, so consider this a free commercial plug from one of Obama's networks. How kind of them.

I saw Karl Rove on televison last night giving advice to Obama on how to curtail his precipitous slide in the polls. One of them was to get out of people's faces on a daily basis. Never has a politician been more overexposed than this guy and people are sick of him. I doubt Obama's in the business of taking Rove's advice, but he might want to consider giving us a break.

Yeah, I know, wishful thinking.
