Obama Visits The View on Friday

AP - Democratic Sen. Barack Obama plans to chat with the women of ABC's "The View" on Friday, his first visit to the daytime talk show as a presidential candidate.

Gabbing with Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elizabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd is one way for Obama to make inroads with female voters. His rival, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, has held the edge with women, capturing 51 percent of the female vote to 45 percent for Obama, according to exit polls for The Associated Press of the competitive Democratic primaries.

Obama last visited "The View" in November 2004 when he promoted his memoir "Dreams from My Father," then in paperback.

"I am really looking forward to my return visit to sit down with the ladies of The View," said Senator Obama.

Bill Geddie, The View's executive producer, added: "Obviously this is a huge day for The View. This is a critical moment for Senator Obama, and we will be devoting most of the show to his interview." More Info
