1. No thanks, not with McCains face as a lead in?

That ruined it for me. I cant stand her two cents about anything.

2. I knew it. No, Hillary tamed the two Republicans and had them eating out of her hand.

3. Great interview!

I havenít watched the View much lately and was quite pleased with these segments. MM was even respectful.

4. Why is Hillary doing this now???

With all the hoopla about nepotism and elite privilege, this is such bad timing.
edit: I should have added 'with her daughter' in case that wasn't obvious. And I have to wonder why it isn't more obvious. This will NOT help win Independents and leaners.

5. They're selling a book. It's what you do. Whoopie herself just made the rounds with her book...

...and was on Colbert.

Still want to pursue that line of reasoning?

8. Whoopie Goldberg, the host of The View, that black lady with the interesting hairdo. Smart as hell.

Comedian, actress, author, that kind of stuff.

IIRC, took her stage name early on from some old vaudevillian. Have no idea what her birth name is and don't care.

11. So, not a powerful Dem figure on a promo tour with her daughter

I have nothing against people promoting their work. And I bet the mom and daughter book is top notch. That wasn't my line of reasoning.
I just think it is incredibly bad timing to be releasing this book now. No matter how specious the Biden/Hunter conspiracy may be, it is subliminally messaging that benefiting from a politically powerful position is okie dokie. And that, IMO, is not a helpful message right now.

12. Apparenty it is always incredibly bad timing for any Democrat to lift up their head & say something

Except when they don't, and then they should have.

I'm sure we'll sort this out eventually.

Meanwhile, the job of talk show hosts and tv anchors is to get interesting people to come on the air and say interesting things so people will watch their program. As it happens, I don't tune in to The View -- but millions of other women do. Millions is a pretty big audience.

13. "The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience"

They mentioned two women from the book: Eleanor Roosevelt and Rachel Carson, environmentalism pioneer and author of the famous "Silent Spring."

The Clintons want to inspire girls and women. That's the message.

"benefiting from a politically powerful position." What? Chelsea has her own career, has a PhD from Oxford. Nobody thinks that family is anything like the Trumps. Unless they believe all the propaganda and conspiracies. And never bother to actually learn anything about anything.

7. Thanks for posting this! I don't watch The View and was glad to see the Clintons...

Caught their appearance on Colbert ... God, did this country miss out. Bright, articulate, deeply informed, every fact at her fingertips...

Interesting about Whoopie -- she asked different questions, and Hillary's response about how she lost the election was more comprehensive than I have seen in the past. That is, I know she addressed Russia and Wikileaks in her book, but I have not seen her do so publicly with such ease before. Unlike Trump, who is a mean, vindictive, and self-pitying bastard, there is not a trace of self-pity (or any of the rest of it) in Hillary.

14. She seems more relaxed, nice to see.

Interesting when McCain and Huntsman said their fathers loved to travel with Hillary and thought she was a blast and she explained why she thought she had to appear more serious. But of course if she had acted any different, she's be attacked for that too. Instead of "unlikeable" there'd be something else.
