The last place anyone really wants to get a serious political question is on Live with Kelly and Michael, and part of us thinks that Barack Obama went on the morning talk show yesterday to do a pre-taped interview, hoping probably for some fluffy emergency PR — hold a baby tiger, talk about his marriage, spin a wheel, etc.

But Michael Strahan, a former NFL player whose father also happens to be a retired major, decided to throw in a surprise question about the VA hospital scandal: “There’s been calls for the resignations, and [VA Secretary Eric] Shinseki says he’s not going to resign. Do you think that he should, and if he doesn’t, would you be inclined to remove him?”
