Who Will Fill the Big Hole Left by Rosie?

On the lighter side (as in humor, not ...) I have been speculating who might be selected to replace Rosie on the View. There are many things to consider. First, it has always been an all women's show. Assuming they will continue that model, this narrows down the field considerably.

I heard some suggetions on a morning radio show, Don Wade and Roma from WLS890, and some were mentioning people that simply had celebrity status. Somebody mentioned Sheryl Crow. I am sure this may be considered, but people like Crow might make a good guest yet after 2-3 days will not have much else to say. So far other than her musical career, when it comes to public discourse Sheryl Crow only seems to have one note and does not sing that note very well.

I am confident the selection will lean to the left (packaged as mainstream of course). This would exclude some interesting selections like Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin or Peggy Noonan. Then there is the "looks" criteria. Barbara Walters has not put much stock in looks when making selections. After all it is a group of women on the show and things could get ugly if they brought in somebody very pretty. They could really play it safe and select Helen Thomas, if they could extract her from the front row of the WH Press Corp. A few other overripe possibilities might be Leslie Stahl, Cokie Roberts or Nina Totenberg.

Well, maybe they might risk bringing in a younger fresher looking woman. I think this is the path they will take, in spite of potential in-fighting among the panel. It is tough on the crowd to have to look at AND hear somebody like Rosie. So, as is my custom of fun, but rarely accurate, I will make my prediction. There is somebody that was recently freed up and may be ready to make such a move. She definitely leans to the left (packaged as mainstream). She is not a screaming maniac like Rosie. My prediction is: Soledad O'Brien. She is frequently "busted" by for her liberal slant and would likely provide even more fodder on the View.

    LOL! Good thing I wasn't drinking anything when I read that.
