So... Who should be Rosie's replacement?

Posted on

Morning, PopWatchers! If you wouldn’t mind taking a few minutes out of this beautiful new day to peel yourself away from the latest O’Donnell/Hasselbeck beat-down that’s currently showing on your TV and weigh in on this supremely important question, we’d be grateful. Here it is: Who should take over for Rosie O’Donnell on The View? Easy peasy. You know you’ve been thinking about it ever since you heard that Ro is on her way out at the end of this season. And even while my colleague Ken Tucker argues that she was basically indispensable, it seems like we have no choice in this matter — Rosie’s heading off to do something else. Anyway, I’d offer some suggestions for replacements, but honestly, I’m having a hard time thinking of someone who brings with her so many of the traits that Rosie has (moxie, smarts, left-leaning politics, humor, etc.). So I leave it to you: What’s your view on the matter?
