Former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight, where he hopes to talk about the energy security plan he unveiled Tuesday.  Per spokesman Josh Earnest, Leno's people invited Vilsack to appear after Leno joked about Vilsack's name -- similar to what Jon Stewart did, but without the AFLAC duck -- in recent monologues.  The Des Moines Register shares that the show "has inquired about permission to use a certain Des Moines Register photograph of the former governor.  You know the one."  (The one with Vilsack dressed up as Winnie the Pooh.)
