More than two weeks after the historic election that saw Barack Obama elected as America’s first black president, CBS News’ 60 Minutes has grabbed the first interview with the President-elect, according to Reuters in conjunction with the Hollywood Reporter.
The hour-long news program has already had a chance to chat with Barack this year, as well as running mate Joe Biden and former opponent John McCain. The interview will take place today and air this Sunday night, and is sure to give the show a big ratings boost.
Michelle Obama will also be answering questions asked by Steve Kroft in Chicago, ostensibly about her plans for the role of First Lady.
While the nation moves farther from the actual election day, politics are still a popular topic, as interviews with John McCain and Sarah Palin are still grabbing viewers in the wake of their election loss.
