Obama Takes Policy Talk to ‘Daily Show’ in Young Voter Outreach

President Barack Obama sat down yesterday for an interview long on politics and policy, and short on laughs, as he sought to reach out to younger voters by appearing on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” less than a week before congressional elections.

In a discussion that stuck closely to his campaign themes of voter “frustration” with the slow economic recovery, Obama and Stewart talked health-care policy and Senate procedure as the president told the supportive crowd that change “is not going to happen overnight.”
