COURIC: You know, I have to say, I read obviously, all about it, I read my Playbook from Politico, my friend Mike Allen every morning, and I’m very interested. But, you know, I am really happy that I got to cover the 2008 campaign, because it was so historic on so many different levels. But, yes, of course I miss doing the political news. But I’m going to hopefully have the candidates on, President Obama and Michelle, and also Governor Romney and Ann Romney on the show.
LENO: Well, how about Sarah Palin? Will you invite her?
COURIC: We have extended an invitation to Governor Palin as well. So far, we have not heard back from their people.
LENO: [Laughs] What does that mean? You have not heard back?
COURIC: Yeah, we have not heard back.
LENO: So, you haven’t gotten one way or the other?
COURIC: Yeah, no. But I mean, if she wanted to come on the show, I think she’s a really interesting person, and she’s welcome.
