Heeeeeeeeere's Barack!

On his next visit to Los Angeles, President Barack Obama will make a stop in beautiful downtown Burbank to tape an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." Tuesday's guesting will mark Obama's fourth time on the Leno show, says The Daily News.

Obama is headed back to Los Angeles (so soon!) on Monday October 24 to take part in two fundraisers, including one aimed at drawing in the Latino vote (and more bucks for his campaign, and the Democratic National Committee). Both events are taking place in private homes; one chez actress Melanie Griffith-Banderas, and the other at the Hancock Park home of Mai and James Lessiter.

Specifics about Obama's itinerary have not been revealed, and it is not clear if Obama will trek over the hill to Burbank on Monday or Tuesday. As always, Obama's visit will necessitate street closures and likely cause traffic delays.
