Seems to me if i heard today's show, i heard one of the good ladies
inviting the presidential candidates to their timeframe intense forum!
even if mccain or obama ignors barbara walters and friends, i'd think
it would behoove huckabee or ms. hillary to take them all up on this invite!
OR EVEN DR. RON PAUL! sometimes they as a group hash over the issues!
could someone in the campaign headquarters ask around and see if this
guest appearance offer is for real? i believe its sincere, and it could bring
an objectivity and zest to the show if quite a few of the current contenders
respond to this brief invite! it happened a short while after dr. ron paul's
support amoungst america's military families was meantioned! i'm hopin
i'm not the only person who heard this offer being made! as it stands now,
ron paul is still sincerely running for president, and should be taken seriously!

Who's on the View? Is it still popular?

I understand it took a nosedive when they had that Rosie on?

(Not saying that I'm against RP accepting the invitation; just wondering if View is a part of MSM or more like on the fringe)

Banana, is there any way to get someone to check the whole thing out?
i figure it would take a few days or so to get a transcript, and i went into
the website to see if they had video clips up yet that would clarify what i
just heard! i think they want to do several interviews that aren't pure
fluff pieces before the race solidifies down into two main contenders! this
is why i think they may be easing up on an official blackout of sorts for
the 3rd, 4th and 5th party candidates. the media does not have to be
"equal time' now, the regs are looser. however to lure a major contender,
they sometimes have to have a rival in the studios. i think they want huckabee
badly right now, or perhaps ms. hillary herself, or if they are tossing a favor
to bill clinton's most significant and longterm relationship, they would have to
balance this with a REPUBLICAN! they can't simply tilt democrat too often!

i'm assuming barbara walters is behind this bright idea...

Joy, one of the hosts, plugged Ron Paul several times today. Most of her comments were about how he is getting the most support from military and military families.

PS They've had him on before. But the discussion centered around the abortion issue.

Yes, I believe The View talks often about Ron Paul. I remember watching a YouTube video a few days ago and they were talking about Dr. Paul a lot... Some bald guy with a book. *shrug*
