Since campaigning began more than a year ago, Americans have seen many spirited debates between candidates, political pundits and television personalities. Some of the most heated conversations have occurred on the set of The View, a daytime talk show that tackles hot topics. On the show, Republican Elisabeth Hasselbeck has sparred with co-host Whoopi Goldberg, a supporter of Democratic candidate Barack Obama, on many occasions.
They may not agree on the issues, but Elisabeth and Whoopi can agree on one thing—the importance of voting. They're putting aside their differences on Election Day to encourage every registered voter to head to the polls.
"Get off your butts, America," Whoopi says. "Walk, run, skip, jump…whatever you have to do. Roll to get to the polls."
"That's right," Elisabeth says. "No more excuses. None."
