(Newser) – President Obama will appear on The View on Thursday, and his visit will be only the second-most-anticipated of the day: Co-host Barbara Walters will return to work for the first appearance on the ABC chatfest by a sitting president, reports Broadcasting & Cable. Walters had surgery in May to replace a heart valve and had planned to return in September. "We are so pleased and honored that President Obama will be a guest on The View," she said in a statement.
