Sherri Shepherd and right of center co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck added Bill Clinton is "very charming" and "extremely charismatic." Whoopi Goldberg told the story of her mother’s star struck meeting adding Clinton has "got it" "that just grabs somebody."

"No, listen. My mom met him. My mother is one of the coolest women I know. She’s very, very put together, very sophisticated. And not a woman to, you know, be out of control. He took one look at her. She looked at him and she was like ‘hi!’ I was like ‘who, who are you? Where did you come from?’ I mean I never saw- I mean, her hair got curly and long. It was a whole thing! She did whatever, she shaped up. I mean, he’s got, he’s got it, it’s that thing that people looked for in the old days in movies. Do you have it that just grabs somebody? He’s got it."

The transcript of the exchange is below.
