Kathy Griffin, from D-List to The View?
By the looks of things on Tuesday morning's episode of the View, Kathy Griffin has her mind set on replacing Rosie O'Donnell - liberal views and all!
Kathy wasn't afraid to go head-to-head with Rosie's rival and sole conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Kathy took some time to bash Condi Rice and to back Hillary Clinton.
GRIFFIN: But when people say I want a woman – ‘maybe Condi Rice.’ That’s not a pro-woman woman. Let me tell you something. Condi Rice is not a woman's woman.
HASSELBECK: Why? Why?
GRIFFIN: Because she follows everything white men say. She does what ever the white man does. .
HASSELBECK: What's wrong with the white man, a black man?
GRIFFIN: Let me tell you something. Any African American woman who is a Republican does not understand that she's not a part of their agenda. Wake up!
Rosie O'Donnell, of course, left her moderators seat on the View three weeks before her contract expired after a very heated argument with Hasselbeck. Maybe Kathy could tame Elisabitch?
Kathy Griffin has been called the front runner for the job by the New York Post. Other names being thrown around include: actress Roseanne Barr, former talk show host Ricki Lake, comedian Wanda Sykes, Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, comedic actress Sherri Shepherd, comedian and radio host Whoopi Goldberg and singer Bette Midler.
Oh Kathy... I love you so much, and love the fact you speak your mind, and you love the gays!! They are wonderful people.. I'm a 61 yr. old woman, who loves what you do... my fondest wish would be to meet you in person.. I'm not a flake.. my husband is a police chief.. I just love your show!! I hope I could meet you some day.. sincerely, Doni Staveley

Kathy Griffin would be a good choice for the View. In addition to Kathy, I would like to see someone like Mariel Hemingway a gorgeous lady with a brain.
As they have to replace two people Star Jones and Rosie, a team of one smart and one comic would be nice.
No matter who comes on board they have to be able to swat off Elisabeth overspeaking, baiting and yelling.

I love Kathy Griffin and I'd tape every episode of the View if she took Rosie's place. But I don't think they'll hire her because she's steal the show. She's so charismatic, energetic, entertaining and fun that the other women will just blend in with the set. And poor little Elizabeth Hasselbeck....she can go suck it!
