It sounded like a prank at the time — on the night of Sept. 11, as news emerged about the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and an assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, word leaked that President Obama would appear the following week on “Late Show with David Letterman.” Certainly he’d cancel in light of the deaths in Libya, right?

We can see the attraction. Will President Eye Candy bring a gift basket to his gracious host? Will Stewart lead with a question on BenghaziGate?

Hey, he doesn’t just blow off foreign leaders. Even the U.S. press is begging for some quality Obama time.

Or maybe “Dancing Around the Constitution”?
