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.

    That seems like a very compatible pair – both are low information voters!

    Good for her!!! Some news were saying that Palin is dragging the ticket down.

    StOP blaming failed policies on a WOMAN. She was BRAVE and she HELD her own ground. It was McCain that did not KICK OFF when the economy crash.

    Again, McCain's economic views did not resonate with Americans. Palin was the perfect boost in the arms to counter Obama.

    If W did NOT TRASH the economy, the McCain/Palin TICKET would have WON!!!! as predicted by Hillary.

    Obama started going down South in the pole and then the economy rescued him. He fought with the Clintons and it TORE up the Demo Dogs.

    It's the ECONOMY and W that busted McCain's ticket, not Palin.

    Two mindless bimbos on the same stage...add up their IQ's and they still aren't smarter than a 5th (or 3rd) grader.

  8. WHO ME?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. THAT WILL MAKE ME CHANGE MY MIND AND VOTE FOR MCCAIN.

    JUST A QUCI QUESTION, WHY DO THE RNC KEEP COMPARING OBAMA'S RECORD TO PALIN. I VOTED EARLY AND I BELIEVE IT WAS MCCAIN'S NAME ON TOP.

    Oh boy! A 2fer!

    Pretty sad to think that asking the blonde one from a silly talk show will somehow up Palin's appeal. SNL – this is an opportunity...

    Who cares? Most conservatives hate that show anyway. She'll probably say something stupid & get fired.

    Who cares. You have a woman with a bachelors degree in communications, and a woman with a bachelors degree in fine arts with survivor on her resume. Give me a break. These two are an insult to politics and the American people.
