Oprah will NOT be inviting potential Vice President Sarah Palin onto her show until after the election, contrary to other reports and speculation.
The talk show queen, who has openly declared her support for Barack Obama during this election released a statement saying the following;
“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,” she adds. “There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show.”
Palin, the first female nominated on a Republican Presidential ticket and strong mother of 5, who is dealing with issues at home like a 17 year old pregnant daughter, is the definition of what Oprah stands up for.
Sounds to me like she’s afraid.
Also note she said she decided not to use her show as a platform for any of the candidates. Obama has appeared three times on the Winfrey show.
If I was O I would use my show as a platform, especially for the candidate of my choice, but I would not say I was going to do the opposite.
If I were Palin, I would refuse going on Oprah’s show after the election, win or lose.
