No more View from the cheap seats for Michelle Obama.

The potential next first lady of the United States is slated to appear June 18 as a guest host on The View.

No celebrity guests have been booked yet, but we're sure Barack Obama's Princeton and Harvard-educated missus will have no trouble being heard over the most vocal ladies in daytime.

Cindy McCain shared couch space with late-night host Craig Ferguson when she performed guest-hosting duties in April.

But although Mrs. McCain beat Mrs. Obama to the coffee klatch, both have the inside track on how to stir it up—their husbands, who right this second are focusing on going head-to-head in November, have been guests on the morning chatfest multiple times.

"We treat the wives differently than the candidates," executive producer Bill Geddie told the Associated Press, adding that they invited Obama on as a guest but that she requested the same role given to McCain. "We're tougher on the candidates than we are on the wives. We're trying to get to know them."
