Obama Compares Washington to “American Idol”

President Obama appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno after his town hall meeting in Los Angeles, and strangely enough, “American Idol” was one of the topics discussed. Obama’s appearance on late-night television marks the first time a sitting president has done so.

President Obama remarked to Leno that Washington, D.C. “is a bit like “American Idol,” except everybody’s Simon Cowell. Everybody’s got an opinion.” Sounds like reality shows mimic real life after all--sometimes.
