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.

    It is interesting how much Obamabots hate pretty women as evidenced by the visious comments posted here.

    This is another non story, why is everything that Palin does put under a microscope, yet no one even knows who Micheal Signator is, Obama's most trusted man?

    Oh Elizabeth, you have such sway. Now your Viewers will most certainly vote for McCain!

  4. Republican FOR Barack Obama!

    Duh....Democrat against Pelosi – If you read the announcement and comprehended what you read, you would know that Mr. Obama's schedule was REARRANGED so that he could travel to Hawaii this evening and spend FRIDAY with his grandmother.

    As usual, the buzzards gather to eat the road kill. The Liberal left will bring America down if good people do nothing.

    Why would you support a women without a clue on- what is going on? Elizabeth seems to know more about politics than Palin.
    I hope she misses a taping of the view too, tired of her spoilled behavior anyway!

    Obama 08 I am going to early vote today!

    I never thought there could be someone more dumb than Bush...

    But I am proved wrong.... McPalin is so dumb, its not even funny...

    We'd be stupid to destroy our futures by electing her...

    Look at little Elizabeth now! From a Survivor participant to a talk show co-host to a political prop!!! Little Elizabeth has done pretty good for herself. Thank goodness for political controversy, she wouldn't be anything without it. Why? Cause little Elizabeth really doesn't have any talent at all, does she? What HAS she done, after all? Good thing The View's Mr. Bill likes little blonde women.

    Elizabeth makes me sick. The hate she has in her heart for someone she doesn't even know puts a knot in my stomach. And for her to actually say she would have voted for barack after the DNC is laughable. She's such a joke.

  13. Democrat is the only way

    Normal people?? I don't think so.

    Dumb and Dumber on the road .... maybe she'll get some of Palin's $150k wardrobe !

    Trump said it best about Elisabeth as a View co-host, DUMB. She won't be on The View much longer and Fox News rejected her when she recently applied for a job with them.

    The nomination of Sarah Palin is offensive and insulting.

    You are all IDIOTS just because you can't handle someone who is successful and doesn't agree with you – WHY do you have to be so rude, obnoxious and disgusting. Such good Americans!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now don't forget to bring your 7th grade American History textbook Elisabeth – Brush up on what a VP is supposed to do, so you can tell your friend, Sarah!

    Is it true that Sarah Palin, when asked in an interview yesterday, could not provide an answer when asked about what is a precondition?

    Well, the McShame camp called Obama a celebrity but they are the ones using celebrites to boost their standing. They are trying every thing under the Sun to win this race. McShame sold his sole for this race and when he loses, he should retire because no one will respect him as much as they did before.

    Two extremely intelligent women who have done nothing more than put up with a bunch of crap from the Femi-Nazi Left. Go get 'em! And, yes, Sarah Palin would make a far better president than either "the One" or Joe the gaffer. If Obama wins, he'll be a rubber stamp for Pelosi's agenda. Now THERE is a woman who needs to be criticized for her stupidity......

    I admire Elizabeth's conviction, I just question her mental stability.
