ABC News’ Ed O’Keefe Reports: As Obama goes, so goes McCain — at least when it comes to Jimmy Kimmel.
On Sunday, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., pre-taped an appearance on Kimmel’s talk show. Asked by Kimmel if he worried vanquished Democratic nomination rival Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., might jump back into the race if the Lakers win, Obama diplomatically replied, "Senator Clinton and I are on the same team."
The appearance marked the presumptive Democratic nominee’s first sit-down with a late-night comic since Clinton dropped out of the race and endorsed his bid. Obama has previously made the rounds with David Letterman, Jay Leno and the "Saturday Night Live" cast.
The candidates aren’t the only ones appearing on a television screen near you. Michelle Obama co-hosts "The View" Wednesday, June 18; Cindy McCain co-hosted the program earlier this year.
Kimmel on Tuesday also welcomes Mike "The Love Guru" Myers for a cameo appearance in the special half hour prime time edition of his late night talk show.
