President Obama visits 'Ellen' for Obamacare

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Mar 19, 2014

After television host Ellen DeGeneres surpassed President Barack Obama's most re-tweeted tweet in Twitter history, many viewers were left wondering "Ellen for President?" Now, President Obama is making his first appearance on DeGeneres' show since becoming president for talk up the Affordable Care Act. (That's then-Senator Obama appearing on the show in 2007 in the clip above.)

The deadline for Obamacare is March 31, and since America clearly listens to DeGeneres, logically it's the best place to secure his pre-deadline message.

"Obama will appear on Thursday's [March 20] episode of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' via live shot from the White House," reports Entertainment Weekly. "Though he made a memorable guest appearance on the talk show when he was campaigning for president, this will be Obama’s first time on 'Ellen' as commander-in-chief."

So again, we ask... Ellen DeGeneres for President?
