Ellen's platform: 'Joy and laughter for all'

MSNBC - USA - Hillary Clinton may find herself in a debate, rather than an interview, when the U.S. senator and Democratic presidential hopeful appears on the season premiere of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Sept. 4.

As it turns out, the show's host is also running for president — at least that's what the comedian told TODAY co-host Matt Lauer during an interview Thursday on the Plaza at Rockefeller Center.

“I’m going to run for president,” DeGeneres dead-panned. “This is my announcement I decided right now I’m going to run for president, and I stand for joy and laughter for all. If you’re not for joy and laughter, I’m not your girl.”

On a more serious note, DeGeneres said the fifth season of her daytime talk show will be dedicated to Merv Griffin, the late talk-show host who also created game shows like "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune."

“I grew up watching that show,” she said. “I’d go home in the afternoon and it felt good. I like Johnny Carson, I like Merv Griffin, I like Mike Douglas, I like Dinah Shore; I like those really feel-good shows that you kind of forgot about everything going on in your life for just an hour. That’s sort of what I hope to do every single day.”
