A roundup of the late-night comics.
Jay Leno: A lot of people giving up things for Lent. Tony Blair giving up on the war in Iraq, I believe.
Conan O'Brien: "Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama have been sniping at each other back and forth. Yeah, it's getting very ugly, yeah. The good news for Obama is all the bickering with Hillary is making him look presidential."
David Letterman: You folks excited about the 2008 presidential race? There's some interesting potential match-ups. For example: Hillary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani. How about that for a match-up? It's an interesting choice. On the one hand you have a pushy New Yorker with a history of marital problems, or you have a pushy New Yorker with a history of marital problems.
Jimmy Kimmel: Prime Minister Tony Blair announced the withdrawal of 1,500 British troops and says that more than half of their troops could be pulled by this summer. [white flash] The British are pulling out. Slovakia is now pulling out. Canada already pulled out. So has Italy, Spain, Portugal, Japan, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Nicaragua, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Norway, Thailand and Singapore. Basically it's just us and the Jamaicans now.
Jay Leno: Democratic presidential candidate Tom Vilsack announced today he has dropped out of the race. [white flash] Well, you know there were signs Vilsack had had enough. Did you see what he did last night? He shaved his head and got a tattoo. That's not a good sign.
Craig Ferguson: People in Hollywood are really, there's a lot of buzz about Barack Obama. You know, a lot of buzz about him. But it's early though. There was also a lot of buzz about "Snakes on a Plane" as well. That went a little Jet Blue as well, didn't it?
