If there’s one thing that makes Barbara Walters disappointed, it’s missing out on a good interview. That dynamic explains Walters’ tone as she explains to her audience on “The View” that Mitt Romney has canceled on his scheduled appearance on the program this coming Thursday, nor can he reschedule the appointment. As Romney continues his post-first-debate surge, perhaps he is finding fresh credibility in what he’d said about “The View” in that secretly recorded fundraiser back in May — that it was a “high risk” move.

Ann Romney is keeping her commitment with the show.
