(Newser) – Barack Obama tonight became the latest presidential hopeful to appear on David Letterman, where he counted down a list of campaign promises we can be pretty sure he won't keep, the Chicago Tribune reports.

  1. Three words: Vice President Oprah
  2. Pronounce the word nuclear, nuclear
  3. I'll find money in the budget to buy Letterman a decent hairpiece
  4. I won't let Apple release the new and improved iPod the day after you bought the previous model
  5. I'll rename the 10th month of the year "Barack-tober"

  1. I'll put Regis on the nickel
  2. If you bring a gator to the White House, I'll wrassle it
  3. Appoint Mitt Romney secretary of lookin' good
  4. I will double your tax money at the craps table
  5. To keep the budget balanced, I'll rent out the situation room for sweet sixteens
