Obama Jokes About Possibly Running For President On 'Jay Leno'

Barack Obama hasn't given a concrete yes or no to questions about running for president in 2008, but he has traded a few jokes with Jay Leno about it.

The Illinois Democrat appeared on the "Tonight Show" couch last night. Leno asked Obama if he'd announce his candidacy there.

Obama said he'd already committed to the Food Network.

Obama also quipped about his appearance at a prominent California church for an AIDS summit yesterday. He told Leno "everybody was reporting" on his attendance, saying there must have been disbelief about a Democrat going to church.

Giving a more serious answer to a question about his candidacy, Obama says he's "got a little bit of time" to decide. He says he'll "dive in early next year" if he does choose to run.
