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.

Who knew that one of our most impassioned political orators would come from daytime TV? Love her or hate her, Elisabeth Hasselbeck of The View has used her daily airtime to speak at length about her support of Sen. John McCain.

Hasselbeck's fiery rhetoric has become so prevalent, it even sparked several rumors that she might ditch Joy Behar & Co. for a job at Fox News.

She's shot down those rumors for now, but there's little doubt that her profile rises with each passing day. Here's a look at the past week-plus:

Oct. 20: The View co-hosts Hasselbeck, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar spar about Gov. Sarah Palin's perceived snub of not appearing on the show.

Oct. 21: Hasselbeck wears a T-shirt that she designed on The View that reads "AmeriMcCain Hero." Political implications aside, it's just confusing.

Oct. 22: Barbara Walters asks if Hasselbeck and Behar ever see eye-to-eye on political issues. Elisabeth Hasselbeck says that's possible since she once considered voting for Obama. Behar calls her "delusional." Hasselbeck bristles at being called a liar, and fires back that Joy should go have "more of the Barack Obama Kool-Aid."

Oct. 23: Celeb news sites report that Behar told Hasselbeck she is making a fool of herself, and that the two are bitterly fighting behind the scenes.

Producers of The View are trying to douse recent reports that two of the popular talk show's pundits - conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck and left-leaning Joy Behar - are in the midst of a feud so bitter they are no longer speaking.

The Chicago Sun-Times saysthe animosity between the two - who get into animated on-air debates about the presidential election almost daily - "has gotten so ugly, they only speak on air or when a camera is in their vicinity."

The paper also reports that Behar did "a vicious impression" of Elisabeth Hasselbeck's campaign appearance with Gov. Sarah Palin this past weekend.

This followed one of several bitter clashes last week - during which Hasselbeck claimed she is open-minded and considered voting for Obama, prompting Behar to fire back, "Oh, come on! That's like saying I could have voted for George Bush."

"Are you calling me a liar, Joy?" snapped Hasselbeck, lifting her coffee cup and shoving it toward Behar. "You want some more Barack Obama Kool-Aid or what?"

Whose side of The View feud are you on?

As we reported last week, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the lone conservative voice on ABC's The View, campaigned in the crucial state of Florida over the weekend for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate.

Free of the shackles of Joy Behar and company, Hasselbeck boasted that for a change, she finally got to talk for five minutes without being interrupted.

Here's Elisabeth's introduction of the V.P. nominee in Tampa. In addition to extolling the All-American values of the GOP ticket, Hasselbeck had some harsh words for Barack Obama - especially over the Sarah Palin wardrobe criticism ...

With all those crazy liberals she works with, The View's resident conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck can't get a word in edgewise on her own talk show.

Fortunately for her, that won't be an issue this weekend as she will be on hand to introduce Alaska Governor Sarah Palin at campaign rallies in Florida.

“I am more than honored to be there, so I will be flying there to travel with her and meet some pretty interesting people,” she said today on The View.

“That’s an honor, I’m excited to do it, and I’ll have some stories I’m sure on Monday,” added Hasselbeck, who was mercifully not maimed by her co-hosts.

You Betcha

Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sarah Palin will share the campaign stage.

According to ABC News, bringing Elisabeth on board comes as the John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign attempts to boost its support among female voters.

Hasselbeck wore a John McCain T-shirt on Tuesday's program, butting heads with liberal co-host Joy Behar as a result and continuing the feud Wednesday.

The presidential election is under two weeks away and tension is rising around the country. The set of The View may be the epicenter of political squabbling.

As usual, the show's resident hot conservative pundit, Elisabeth Hasselbeck clashed with Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar over Barack Obama and taxes. But apparently, that was nothing compared to a confrontation taking place after the broadcast.

Hasselbeck was reportedly pissed that Behar has been using The View to tout Behar's upcoming stand-up performance, which she called "political in nature." Elisabeth, sporting a tight little John McCain t-shirt, demanded equal time.

Joy got in Elisabeth's face, screaming "If you do that again I will burn you down." (!?) Elisabeth turned beet red and started to stammer out something. At that point, Joy turned around and yelled, "Shut the f*%k up!" and stormed off.

Just another week at the office.

You gotta love Elisabeth Hasselbeck. From an entertainment standpoint, at least.

Whether she's hating on abortion or the morning after pill, promoting the war Iraq, or telling people when they can and can't use the n-word, The View's resident blonde, conservative motormouth never shies away from voicing her opinions.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Quotes

Right now, with two kids, one 3 and one 5 months, a little walk for ice cream with the kids is perfectly romantic. When they are falling asleep in the stroller and [we can] just take in the city together.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck [on the spark in her marriage]

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.
