Ok so maybe those weren't her exact words, but that's the message.
OPRAH'S STATEMENT: "The item in today's Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over." In other words after it can't possibly help her get elected has the first woman Vice-President and defeat my man Obama she can come on. "For the record, Barack Obama has been on "Oprah" twice -- in January, 2005 and again in October, 2006 -- before he announced his run for Prez."
As she was leaving the DNC last week she commented to a reporter that she "cried her eyelashes off," during Obama's speech. "I think it's the most powerful thing I have ever experienced." She also said of Obama, "He's not an African-American candidate," she said. "He's a candidate for Americans." There is no doubt that Oprah supports Obama, she does so openly. However to deny a woman who has worked her way from the PTA to Governor a chance to have a forum on her show is not only bias, but extremly bad business.
Oprah apparently feels it is more important to get Obama elected President than to give her viewers a chance to meet the women who may be that first female to hold executive office in this country's history. I hope if John McCain and Sarah Palin are elected to office that Palin refuses to appear on Oprah when asked. I believe this is a decision Oprah will eventually reget, probably once her ratings drop and they cancel her show.
