Out.

Stephanie Cutter: He would be an interesting guest for all of us, not just the progressive side or the conservative side. He is interesting for all of us. No way I would let him come on "Crossfire." He's covered all of the questions he should have. He is all theater, and there were gaping holes in what he said.
Zap2it: Do you think he is a shoo-in for the Gop ticket in 2016?
Stephanie Cutter: I can't think that far ahead. I'm honestly looking at getting through the next few months.

"Parks and Recreation" has booked another high-profile guest star from the world of politics for its sixth-season finale: First lady Michelle Obama.
The first lady filmed her scene earlier this week in Miami, where she was marking the four-year anniversary of her "Let's Move" initiative to fight childhood obesity. "Parks and Rec" star Amy Poehler joined Obama on stage at an event in Miami, but there was no indication then that the show would be filming as well.
Details of Obama's appearance on "Parks and Rec" aren't available at the moment, but given Poehler's presence in Miami, it could very well involve Leslie Knope's head exploding.
The "Parks and Rec" season finale is scheduled for April 24. »
