It’s Official: He Told A Comedian
Have you noticed that in the last dozen years or so it’s become more and more of a tradition that a politician isn’t considered to be officially running for president until they have announced that fact to a comedian on a talk show.

presidency Hollywood-style. “I’m running for president of the United States,” Thompson
told Jay Leno in a taped appearance on NBC’s “Tonight Show” airing Wednesday.
