Rosie O'Donnell is joining "The View."
A lesbian in a committed relationship and known for being outspoken, O'Donnell's addition will provide a challenge to the show's ego mix. Vieira, who was a mediating influence, is leaving to replace Katie Couric on NBC's "Today" show.That might be a challenge to the "ego" mix, but it will certainly not be a challenge to the mix of political discourse. It will simply be more left-leaning political hand wringing with some forced guffaws thrown in for good measure. Exactly what we should expect from ABC.
