President Barack Obama stopped by The View today, marking the first-ever appearance by a sitting Commander-in-Chief on a daytime talk show.
The subject matter was mostly light.
Obama did touch on some of his recent lows - prosecuting two wars, the BP oil slick, a misstep over a race flap - and the greatest indignity of all:
He wasn't invited to Chelsea Clinton's wedding.
"I was not invited," Obama admitted when asked if he'd be attending Chelsea's nuptials with Marc Mezvinsky in Rhinebeck, N.Y., this coming weekend.
Obama said he supported the Clintons' decision to limit invites to guests who had a relationship with Chelsea, rather than including world leaders.
"I think Hillary and Bill properly want to keep this as a thing for Chelsea and her soon-to-be husband," he said. "You don't want two presidents."
Obama later revealed that his pop culture knowledge is significant, but not without holes. "I've got to admit I don't know who Snooki is," he said.
"I knew Lindsay was in jail," he added, referring to the jailing of Lindsay Lohan for failing to comply with probation terms of her DUI sentencing.
Asked about the recent scandal over the Oksana Grigorieva / Mel Gibson tapes, Obama replied: "I haven't seen a Mel Gibson movie in a while."
Obama does not use Twitter, but was a big fan of the iPod.
"I got Jay-Z on there, I've got Frank Sinatra. I've got Maria Callas on there," he said of the MP3 player. "I do not have Justin Bieber on there."
Slipping in polls of late, Obama may have decided on the light sit-down with the women of The View to reconnect with his female base.
He accomplished that, but did touch on some key issues.
