View co-host hitting the trail

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/10/23/art.view.cnn.jpg caption="Hasselbeck is set to hit the campaign trail."]

(CNN) - Elizabeth Hasselbeck, the lone conservative on the daytime talk-show "The View," is set to campaign with Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin this weekend.

Hasselbeck, who often clashes with her co-hosts over the presidential election, said Thursday the Alaska governor had asked her to participate in a weekend rally in Florida.

"Governor Palin asked me to be with her this Sunday to introduce her at the rallies in Florida and I am more than honored to be there," Hasselbeck said. "So I will be flying there to travel with her and meet some pretty interesting people, I have a feeling. So that's an honor, I am excited to do it, and I'll have some stories on Monday."

Palin is set to campaign in Iowa, Indiana, and Florida this weekend.

Hasselbeck has engaged in repeated arguments with co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Sherri Shepherd on-air over the presidential candidates, especially after the show's unexpectedly hard-hitting interview with John McCain last month.

    Elizabeth needs a dose of reality instead of living like a sheep.

    Too bad you won't be gone during the week, so you could be off the show. Why would Palin want someone dumber than her introducing her? This campaign keeps getting funnier and funnier!!

    Oh that's rich- Caribou Barbie and Hollywood Barbie hit the trail.
    Are they going to ride in the Malibu Barbie convertible to spread the message of hate and fear, mismanaged policies and self-serving political philosophies?
    I hope the View fires her for this.

    how the election turns out? Maybe? Maybe? Maybe?

    Great, one idiot running around with another.

    How sad that Elizabeth is going to campaign with Palin. I can not understand how any Christian can support the politics of hate-lies-division-and-hate that the Republicans spew.

    Elizabeth is wrong.

    PLEASE AMERICA WE MUST REJECT THE POLITICS OF HATE-LIES-DIVISION-AND-FEAR!

  14. I can see Alaska

    SEVEN VP's have had to become Presidents.

    Thats a 1 in 7 chance that Palin will become President!

    Are you willing to take that chance?????

    I guess if you can't get Colin Powell, the next best thing is the Survivor Reality Star. That should win some votes!

    Her and Sarah Palin and two pees in a pod. She doesn't want to say she's racist, but after a while, it doesn't even need to be said. At least this way she doesn't have to mess up her expensive hairdo with that cumbersome, unsightly white hood...

    This should be interesting with one dumb rock introducing another dumb rock. The other rocks in the sack are protesting.

    One bobble-head supporting another bobble-head. Not very impressive. Hope the RNC buys Elisabeth a $7,000 jacket to wear.
