ABC News’ Sunlen Miller Reports: Barack Obama will be a guest on ABC’s "The View" on Friday, March 28th, in the Democratic contender’s only morning talk show appearance next week.

"I am really looking forward to my return visit to sit down with the ladies of ‘The View’," Obama said.

This is the Senator’s second appearance on the show but his debut as a presidential candidate.

Obama’s first appearance came in November 2004 when promoting his book "Dreams of My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance".

"Obviously, this is a huge day for "The View". This is a critical moment for Senator Obama and we will be devoting most of the show to his interview," said the show’s executive producer Bill Geddie.

Obama was previously scheduled to be a guest in September, but had to a cancel to attend to his day job when last minute votes were called in the Senate.

His wife, Michelle Obama, also cancelled her appearance as co-host in December when she refused to cross picket lines while the WGA strike was still ongoing.

In addition to sitting down with the ladies of "The View", Obama will also be in New York City to raise a little coin and plans to attend several fundraisers.
