President Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will speak to "60 Minutes" together in their first-ever joint interview, the White House announced Friday.

Communications director Dan Pfeiffer said that the interview will air Sunday. "60 Minutes" noted that it will be Obama's first interview with anyone besides Michelle Obama.

Politico's Mike Allen, who was the first to report the news, tweeted that Steve Kroft -- who has talked to Obama many times on "60 Minutes" -- will conduct the interview. It is certainly hard to imagine the two sitting down for a cozy chat in the heat of the 2008 presidential campaign.

Clinton, who recently confessed her distaste for Sunday morning shows, obviously feels differently about Sunday evening shows.
