NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - First it was Barack Obama. Now Hillary Clinton's appearing on Fox News Channel.

Clinton will appear on "The O'Reilly Factor" for the first time, sitting down for a two-part interview that will air Wednesday and Thursday. She and host Bill O'Reilly will talk in South Bend, Ind., where Clinton is campaigning ahead of the Indiana primary on Tuesday.

The channel had been working with the Clinton campaign about interview timing for a week. Although it will be her first time on "Factor," she has been on "Fox News Sunday."

It's been quite a week for the Democrats vis a vis Fox News Channel, which former candidate John Edwards railed against and which has until recently been denied any of the Democratic debates and face time with most of the candidates.

On Sunday, fellow Democratic contender Obama appeared for the full hour of "Fox News Sunday." Host Chris Wallace had, until Sunday, run a regular feature called "Obama Watch" where the show counted the days since Obama had agreed to appear on the show.
