Should Obama's Daughters Appear on Hannah Montana?

Our SideReel Gets Political feature may have concluded last week (so be sure to check out this week's Cancellation Danger Zone feature), but that doesn't mean that there aren't important lingering questions.

For example, should Barack Obama's daughters guest star on Hannah Montana?

The show has extended an offer to them - and the girls are reportedly big fans of the show.

The question is, this a good decision for the Obama family? Hannah Montana (*cough* Miley Cyrus) hasn't always gotten positive, family-friendly press and furthermore, it would be thrusting the two young girls directly into the limelight in a media-crazy country.

What do you guys think?

"...Hannah Montana [Miley Cyrus] hasn't always gotten positive, family-friendly press..."
Neither have black people in America, but did that stop Barack Obama from running for president? No.
I think that if the offer was extended to them, their parents should be the ones to give the go ahead or the big "no". Why must we, as judgmental outsiders, have any say in it? They are people, just as we are even if our names aren't splashed in the media soaked papers everyday.
My point is that why is this question even being brought up? Who are you/we to decide something so personal? Also, why would anyone care? It just annoys me that people think they should have a say in someone's life that they don't know.
I personally think that having the first daughters on a national children-friendly television show would bring positive reinforcement to other children, and in a way be subconsciously igniting a political side in them at an early age.

Actually it's because they're kids...I think it would be a fun experience for's just a guest appearance so it wouldn't be for long. They shouldn't have to miss out on the oppertunity especially if they're such big fans.
What Miley does in her own time is her long as the show remains wholesome...which it will.
