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.

    Well I guess it is a step up from "Joe the plumber" !!!!! It also makes sense, it helps Sarah to be seen as the "smart one" for a change..... Again the bar is set low for Palin

    That was nice of Palin. I wish Elizabeth would leave the view. I have only watched the clips and it seems like a rough show to go on.

    I can see Alaska,

    Actually, it's a 7 in 43 chance, which is more like 1 in 6.142857 chance. BUT IT'S STILL A SCARY THOUGHT! Yikes!!!!

    A desperate cry for help...two women being exploited by looks alone rather than substance. If she (Elizabeth) was intelligent enough that would have been a great stump but unfortunately looks can only take you so far. These two women who have nothing to offer other than what they can do for their income level.

    Maybe they can wear coordinating outfits from Sachs. My guess is they will be able to relate on an intellictual level as well as political.

    Oh no, I cannot stop laughing – dumb and dumber going on the road – I wonder if the two of them together can said anything of substance- Please tell me this is some kind of joke

    You all make me sick, and should remember that there are undecideds still out there listening to you guys bash women because they disagree with you. Both of these two have successful careers and are obviously doing something right, and both seem a darn sight nicer than most CNN posters. Watch what you say to insult others when you are campaigning guys.
