Now it's Clinton doing a gig on Fox News


First it was Barack Obama. Now Hillary Clinton's appearing on Fox News Channel.

Host Bill O'Reilly's two-part interview with the Democratic presidential candidate will appear today and Thursday on "The O'Reilly Factor." O'Reilly and Clinton will talk in South Bend, Ind., where Clinton is campaigning ahead of the Indiana primary Tuesday.

The channel had been working with the Clinton campaign about interview timing for a week.

It has been quite a week for the Democrats vis a vis Fox News Channel, which former candidate John Edwards railed against and which has until recently been denied any of the Democratic debates and face time with most of the candidates.

Clinton's appearance today will be the first time that she has appeared on "Factor," though she has been on "Fox News Sunday" as well as the channel itself.

On Sunday, fellow Democratic contender Obama appeared for the full hour of "Fox News Sunday." Host Chris Wallace had, until Sunday, run a feature called "Obama Watch," which counted the days since Obama had agreed to appear on the show. (partialdiff)
