White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer says in a tweet that Obama will be on the show Tuesday. Obama will be traveling on the West Coast next week, raising money for his re-election bid and trying to boost public support for his jobs bill.

This will be Obama's fourth time on Leno's show. He made two appearances as a presidential candidate. His last appearance was in March 2009, shortly after taking office.
