News broke on Tuesday that Elisabeth Hasselbeck would be leaving "The View" for Fox News' morning show, making Wednesday her last day on the longtime ABC daytime show.

This would not be the first time a host jumped from "The View" to a morning show, as Meredith Vieira made a similar move in 2006 when she joined "Today." But it is the first time a host would leave the program for Fox News. And since Fox News' morning show covers politics, among other topics, let's take a moment to look back at Hasselbeck's most political moments that surely prepared her for the job.

10. She's interviewed the Obamas! And been fact-checked by the president!
