By Brian Prowse-Gany

Hail to the chief! This week marks the return of America’s favorite foul-mouthed leader, President Selina Meyer, in Season 4 of HBO’s hit comedy “Veep.” Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns in the role that has already won her three Emmys and a SAG Award. With Selina, Julia has accomplished the rare achievement of having a third successful character on TV, following Christine Campbell in “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and, of course, theunforgettable Elaine Benes from “Seinfeld.”

Now that Julia’s character on “Veep” has officially moved into the Oval Office, Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric thought it was only fitting to have a chat with Julia in the ultra-exclusive Presidential Suite of the Waldorf Astoria, which has hosted every sitting United States president since Herbert Hoover.
