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.

    A lovely, smart woman, who unfortnately is a GOP Parrot. She repeats just about the same lines as Gov. Palin, except she sounds more intelligent.

    I can't believe "The View" would be ok with this. I can't picture them being on ok with Behr if she said she was stumping with Obama. All this is pushing the line.

    Good. I hope the plane gets hijacked to Cuba and Raul leaves her to rot in "El Morro."

    Let's see:
    everthing with Whoopi is about race
    Joy Behar wouldn't know an intelligent thought if it bit her
    Sherri once bragged that she had more abortions than she could count
    Baba Wawa is an absolute disgrace and just a shill

    Oh, campaigning with a woman who wears the same brand of blinders will definitely get intelligent women to the polls to vote early for McCain. You betcha.

    So then we'd see a blonde Barbie and a brunette Barbie on the same stage! Cool! Like that's supposed to help McCain now?

    Seems odd for a polarizing woman to choose another polarizing woman to pal around with her, but, whatever. Haven't been making good decisions so far, so why start now.

    OMG. I have no respect for Elizabeth. This move again, only motivates the base. I wish ABC would fire Elizabeth, we know she would have a job at Fauxnews.

    Would it be too much to ask to actually have someone that understands the world on or working for the Republican ticket?

  18. Shame Shame I Know your name GOP

    Elizabeth is a child, she has little life experience to draw from this is her main reason for being a Rep. If she lived in the real world like most Americans she would see the light.

    LOL – what a campaign when they have to seek help from EH. Why not bring Rosie along that would really make it entertaining.

    you're not getting the women votes Mrs. Palin. And glad you find someone as "smart" as you to help you out

    Not that the View has any clout with anyone but why on earth in the final days of your campaign trail would you ask one of the most reviled people on television to join you?
