Jay Leno Presents 'Les Miserables' Style Sequester Negotiations

NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno presented a great interpretation of the sequester negotiations Wednesday.

In a mock video, many of our political leaders sang their views as if characters in the hit musical "Les Miserables."

"Have you noticed now the politicians - both sides - are getting very dramatic?" Leno asked his audience. "You know, since Hugh Jackman and Ann Hathaway went to Washington, they've gotten that whole "Les Miz" attitude."

A video was then aired first featuring President Obama "singing" his side of the debate followed by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Oh.), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and finally much of the Congress on the steps of the Capitol.

Great stuff.
