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.

    Maybe she should dye her hair brown then they could campaign as sisters!
    Funny how everything they are doing is simply shoring up the base. It's not going to win them the election.

    Fran,

    Are you kidding me? He didn't say he visited 57 states, he said he participated in 57 contests because some states had both primary elections and caucuses.

    Elizabeth should stay on the trail with Sarah Palin. Won't mis her on THE VIEW. Once she's out there on the trail a dose of reality well hit her.

    If Springsteen can give concerts for Obama, and so many celebrities speak out against McCain and Palin, what's wrong with Elizabeth campaigning with the candidate she supports?

    Many of you Obama supporters need to grow up.

    Maybe they can explain the Alaskan Independence Party and why it is so ANTI-AMERICAN and how that has shaped Sarah Palin's views.

    Yeah, 'cause a reality TV bobblehead is SURE to make things turn around for the incredible train wreck that IS Sarah Palin.

    Tell me you Sarah haters (you know who you are), do you honestly think you could do better?

    I highly doubt any of you could speak in a roomful of people let alone in front of millions via national television and 1,000's live at rallies. So sit back relax go finish your kool-aid.

    Just remember 4 years from now when someone is running against Obama and just see if you feel the same way you do now. Most of you won't admit that you are voting BECAUSE Obama is black. We will see if that is enough to solve the problems this country faces. I just hope when your blogging 4 years from now, you don't say....what did I ever see in him? You know buyers' remorse!

  18. Doh!

    Wow oh Wow. who cares.

    Are you anti family or is it that you only pay attention to the news that suits you? Obama's grandmother is VERY sick, hence his sudden trip. How cold!

    lol... I love the right wing idiots on here. You know all about this pathetic blonde bimbo and nothing about the real world.
    What angry, mean little people you are. Abe Lincoln must be doing about 73 RPM right now....... think of what his party has become.
    In fact I bet Ron Reagan would be voting for Obama.

    All you women are just so jealous. Have any of you been elected Governor of a state with an 84% approval rating. I don't think any of you bimbos could handle it. Go have your abortions because you're not intelligent enough to use preventive measures.

    Finally, you found your perfect match with sarah Palin. Two bimbos lol..talking airheaded comments and both very hypocritical.
