Barbara Walters arrived back on "The View" from a short break Monday -- the papps buzzing madly in her wake -- and while she'd didn't deny all those reports about her retirement last week, she'd didn't confirm either.

Which is sort of longish way of saying: She declined to comment.

The point of this post, however, is that Babs, bless her, is probably a little ambivalent about leaving the show, leaving the spotlight, and leaving the fame. And who can blame her? But she was on the air this morning and had a couple of things to say -- all of them adroitly. Thanks to Mediaite for this clip-grab.
