Michelle Obama Defends Patriotism, Jokes of ‘Girl Fight’ on ‘View’

Michelle Obama made her debut appearance on ABC’s “The View” Wednesday as her husband, Sen. Barack Obama, wages a fight against Sen. John McCain for the support of women voters, a key bloc in the race for the White House.

Obama appeared relaxed, cracking jokes alongside “View” co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar, and Sherri Sheperd.
