Elisabeth Hasselbeck Wants Whoopi for 'The View'


Elisabeth Hasselbeck is endorsing Whoopi Goldberg as her new co-host on “The View.”

"I loved working with Whoopi Goldberg,” a pregnant Elisabeth told People. "She is soulful, has a world of experience to bring to the table, and I don't sense any sort of political agenda. She is so funny, but at the same time, she is one of the most thoughtful people that I've met."

Asked if Barbara Walters is also endorsing Whoopi for the job, Elisabeth said, "You'd have to ask Barbara. But I'm sure she is. Who isn't into Whoopi? She's an amazing person."

“The View” is currently looking for two hosts to fill Rosie O’Donnell and Star Jones’ seat. Other contenders include Sherri Shepherd and Kathy Griffin.

An announcement should be coming any day about who will take the coveted seat – Barbara said she would have her pick by the end of July.

Who do you think should be the new co-host? Sound off here.
