Elisabeth Hasselbeck Actually Happy For Obama

by at . Comments

Although she fiercely supported Sen. John McCain, Elisabeth Hasselbeck isn't outraged that Democratic Sen. Barack Obama was elected president last night.

On Wednesday's episode of The View, Elisabeth recalled how her daughter Grace asked who lost the election - and her response was rather heartwarming.

"No one lost today, and God knows I fought hard on the other side," Hasselbeck said. "Today is a victory for this country. The first black president. The first black first lady. The first black family. I haven't felt this good..."

Added Joy Behar (who nearly murdered sparred verbally on a frequent basis with Hasselbeck during the campaign): "Are you saying I was right all along?"

Smiling, Hasselbeck and Behar exchanged a fist bump. Wow. To paraphrase one of many memorable The Office quotes: Congratulations, universe, you win.

NO HARD FEELINGS: Conservative Elisabeth Hasslbeck was an outspoken political opponent of his, but was gracious to president-elect Barack Obama today.

I dont usually watch, but I recorded that episode because I wanted to see that demon squirm. I can tell how happy she was when she walked in in all black. Har har har. I'd be surprised if she could keep up her happy act.

Body image has nothing to do with scale numbers, it's how you feel inside. This is the first time I've felt free from that, because I am working out in a way where I feel so strong that there's no room for those doubts.
