Yes, Sherri, sitting among intelligent and informed people can make a difference! I'm glad she finally got on the bandwagon. She's doing right by herself, and her son!
Elisabeth's selective intelligence isn't about her being an Obama supporter or not. It's about Elisabeth being Elisabeth. We saw her mindset/chosen capabilities long before we ever started dealing with President-Elect Obama. The woman has chosen to remain unexposed to the world around her, and opens her mouth and lets it be known.....much like Sherri...but Sherri has shown that she's learning about the world around her, by leaps and bounds, much more than Elisabeth. I think Sherri was behind Elisabeth, intellectually, when she started The View; I think Sherri has surpassed Elisabeth in learning about the world around her. Choose Intelligence! It is a wonderful thing, and I think some people on this show are learning that!
