It's true I just read it! Barack Obama will appear with Keith on September 8th. I wonder if Rachel Maddow will make an appearance on the show as well.Rachel Maddow's show will premier right after Keith that night. What a way to open big! As reported on Huffington Post!
ST. PAUL - Sept. 3, 2008 - Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama will join MSNBC's Keith Olbermann Monday, Sept. 8, on "Countdown with Keith Olbermann," 8-9 p.m. ET. It is Sen. Obama's first "Countdown" interview since March and since he became the Democratic party's nominee.
"Countdown with Keith Olbermann" telecasts weeknights, 8-9 p.m. ET on MSNBC. Izzy Povich is executive producer

Bad questions. Bad media. Bad.
I didn't see this diaried yet, but wanted to let every one know! I sme
