Michelle Obama's making a well-timed 'View' stop
To the victors belong ... ever-increasing television exposure.
ABC's women-oriented chat show "The View" has announced that Michelle Obama, the presumptive Democratic contender for first lady, will appear on the program June 18 (a Wednesday). In fact, she's being billed not only as a guest, but a "co-host" with regulars Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.
Obama had been scheduled for a "View" drop-by in early December, but -- being the good Democrat that she is -- cancelled because of the writers strike that began in late November.
As it turns out, her upcoming appearance is more propitiously timed, given that one of her husband's immediate challenges is to make-nice to Hillary Clinton's legion of female supporters (some of whom, we imagine, are "View" watchers).
