This Sunday night President Obama will make his third appearance on CBS's 60 Minutes. 


His first appearance on the show was while he was still president-elect back on November 16, 2008.    He was also on the show March 22 of this year. 

According to CBS, in the interview, Mr. Obama promises that he will get the "right" health care bill to his desk.  

CBS today released the following excerpt from the interview: 

“I have no interest in having a bill get passed that fails.  That doesn't work. You know, I intend to be president for a while and once this bill passes, I own it.  And if people look and say, ‘You know what?  This hasn't reduced my costs.  My premiums are still going up 25 percent, insurance companies are still jerking me around.’ I'm the one who's going to be held responsible.  So I have every incentive to get this right.”

Steve Croft taped the interview with the President Friday night at the White House.
