I inserted a CAD link "this view only" and I cannot now get it to turn on in any other view. I used this option so I would not have to hide it in every view. Now do I have to delete it and start over inserting it so it shows up everywhere?

Well, that is the exact function of "This View Only", is that it is imported as an annotation in that View, which can be seen in no others (aside from Dependent Views).
If you want to link a CAD file into your Project, but don't want to have to go and turn it off in every View, Import/Link the CAD file without "This View Only" selected and choose one of these methods:
A) Place the CAD import onto a dedicated Workset, and set that Workset to be off by default. Then, you can turn it on in only the Views in which you want to see it (via V/G Overrides > Worksets tab). The Project must be Workshared.
B) Create a new Design Option for the CAD file. Place the CAD import on a secondary option so that you will have to specifically make that Design Option Visible in a View in which you want to see it (via V/G Overrides > Design Options tab). The bonus/hindrance (depends on your situation) to this method is that the CAD import will generally be unseletable, unless that Design Option is active or the "Exclude Options" checkbox is cleared in the bottom right corner of the application.
EDIT: Yes, you'll have to remove the "Current View Only" versions and re-link/re-import it again without that option. As far as I know, there is no way to remove the "This View Only" setting for an existing import.
