Here is video of President Obama appearing on the David Letterman Show, which will air tonight.
In this clip, Obama talks with Letterman about what "his day" is like as President.
Letterman also asked Obama if he thought Jimmy Carter was right that opposition to Obama at Town Hall Meetings is a result of "racism." Obama said, "It's important to realize that I was actually black before the election."
Obama once again compared himself to FDR, pointing out that he was called a "socialist," even as Obama is being called a socialist.
