Several bloggers attempted to post President Obama's Thurday night appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno today but wound up with blank screens due to NBC's assertion of copyright. Here is the sanctioned NBC uplink to the entire visit:

As Enterprising Investor Forum wrote, "It’s really excellent that he actually went on the show and also good to see that the President has not lost his sense of humor!"

Alternatively, you can just check out NBC's highlights reel of the interview:

This was the first appearance by a sitting president on the iconic late-night Tonight Show; George W. Bush appeared on the game show Deal or No Deal late in his term, and Presidential candidate Bill Clinton played the saxophone on The Arsenio Hall show in 1992.
