The best women broadcasters of the last 50 years turned out today to surprise Barbara Walters on her final day as co-host of The View.
“We all have been influenced by you,” said Oprah, “And we all proudly stand on your shoulders.” Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Maria Shriver and more than a dozen more broadcaster journalists came on stage to honor Walters, whose half-century career inspired thousands of women to go into the profession.
Hillary Clinton also came to surprise Walters, and even did a little “surprise dance” as Whoopi Goldberg announced her as a special guest. Clinton was one of Barbara’s “Most Fascinating People” many times, and so Barbara asked her the question on everyone’s mind: Are you going to run?
“I am running… around the park,” Clinton said.
View co-host Sherri Shepherd took a different tack, asking Clinton what she wanted to be called as a grandmother when her daughter Chelsea’s baby is born. “You like Nana?” asked Shepherd, pausing a bit before adding: “You like President Clinton?”
Clinton also describes how her new book Hard Choices incorporated her personal history into her political decisions.
