Elisabeth Hasselbeck stumps for Palin After several contentious mornings on The View, word spread that conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck would be leaving for her own show on Fox News. She later denied the reports on-air, but it came as no surprise when news broke that she would be campaigning for Palin in Florida. Talking to the crowd, she said: Let me be honest, I was pretty much excited to be able to talk for a full five minutes without getting interrupted, she said. And, at the very least, Hasselbeck was able to address the charges that Palins wardrobe was costing the campaign a pretty penny. Instead of the issues, [the media are] focused, fixated, on her wardrobe.... This is deliberately sexist. Palin took the stage a moment later to say: Those clothes? Theyre not my property. Im not taking them with me. Im back to wearing my own clothes from my favorite consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska.
