During her guest appearance, Danes explained how she and her husband were starstruck upon meeting the President at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

When Letterman asked the actress how she had come to meet him, Danes responded: “I went to the White House Correspondents Dinner and I found myself in a VIP room -which was very exciting. And my husband was very courageous and said ‘We are going to meet the president.”

I say, ‘Hello, Mr. President, I’m Claire Danes, it’s so lovely to meet you.’ And he said, ‘Oh yes, Claire Danes. Claire, you’re a fine actress.’ And I say, well you’re a fine president.’ And he said, you know, ‘Well, you’re a finer actress than I am president,’ and I just had no retort whatsoever, so I ran to the bar and had a very large shot of vodka.”

    LOL. Barack Obama was right, Claire Danes is a finer actress than he s a president. So, I do not understand why the great actress was so stressed. He is doing his job and she does hers. People, let’s forget about our jobs and positions, after all, we all human. No need to feel VIP meeting a president. I see nothing special about that, especially in Obama. Heheheh!
