Video- Conan O'Brien to entertain White House Correspondents Dinner

I was trying to find some of the more political stuff from the last time O'Brien spoke at the WHCA Dinner (President Clinton, 1995) but this is all I could find.
Haven't watched him in a bit, but he did seem to be getting a little more biting in his old age.

Washington (CNN) - It's the biggest dinner inside the Beltway, and one of the biggest questions surrounding the annual White House Correspondents Dinner is which entertainer will headline the event.

The answer for this year's dinner, which will take place on April 27, is Conan O'Brien, host of the late night talk show "Conan" on TBS. White House Correspondents Association president Ed Henry announced the news Wednesday morning.

"Conan is one of television's most innovative and influential talents and I am absolutely thrilled that he has agreed to be this year's featured act," said Henry in a statement. "As social media has changed all aspects of the media business, Conan has embraced this shifting landscape to become a creative force both online as well as in the traditional television model."

Henry also hinted in a tweet that "Team Coco" partner in comedy Andy Richter may also have a role at the dinner, which is customarily attended by the president, first lady, Washington reporters, writers and producers, and increasingly, Hollywood stars. The annual speech by the comedian is traditionally preceded by comments from the president, in which he pokes fun at himself as well as top politicians.
