Jimmy Fallon solicits questions for John McCain

The host of NBC's "Late Night" Jimmy Fallon took to Twitter to ask his followers what he should ask tonight's guest, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)

The former Saturday Night Live star specifically requested that audience members submit questions on healthcare reform. The new media-savvy Fallon has previously used Twitter to collect questions for celebrities appearing on his show.

Fallon tweeted Monday:

Sen. John McCain on the show tonight & we want questions for him from you. @ reply back here and I'll pick some for the show. Thanks.

Great ?s so far for @SenJohnMcCain. We want questions about the Health Care issue too - send away.

Fallon took over the "Late Show" reins from Conan O'Brien in June, when the latter became the new host of the "Tonight Show."

McCain is no stranger to the late night television circuit over the years. The senator famously canceled an appearance on CBS' "Late Show" with David Letterman.

Here is his "excuse" for bailing on Dave:
