Miss Winfrey, you left your church in Chicago because of the racist ranting and conspiracy theories of Reverend Wright. How did you feel about Barack Obama remaining a loyal member of the congregation?

This one amazes me.....WHY would Sarah not go on FOX first instead...its not like Fox is a ‘small” TV venue.

So is it about the money and fame? Is she going to ask Oprah why she didn’t have her on when she was running for VP? doubt it. Maybe I am just getting cynical about all the pols.

Now who though that THIS was a good idea???

I think the publishers are just in standard operating mode, doing what they usually do when book goes to press, try to get it on Oprah for a guaranteed sales boost.

Isn’t anyone using their heads ?

She will NOT NEED oprah to boost sales. In fact, it could hurt her.

Palin should tell her in plain english to GO F#@$ herself

If I were Sarah, I’d turn the tables on EVERY question the big “O” aksed me. “Sarah, what makes you think you’re qualifed to be President?” ......”Oprah, how does it feel to know the sacrifice you and Michelle made to help win the Olympics for Chicago was so mercilessly rebuffed?” “ Further, How do you feel that your ass is getting as big as Michelle’s?”

Thunder thighs Oprah will not be kind to Sarah. The crazy thing is no political figure on the right can win....if you take an exclusive interview with FOX, you are obviously lying and a wacky right wing terrorist....if you take an interview with an alphabet station, you are going to get ambushed...

It’s a LIVE broadcast (NO EDITING) and our Sarah can handle oprah, the mental midget.

I'm not so sure of that. Oprah's ratings have been in the tank since the One was elected.

Her audience of women was shocked that she didn't support Hillary.

Anyone interested in the Presidency had better be able to bring a solid A game and be able to handle herself/himself in the lion’s den.

Sarah needs to be sure of her convictions, and be able to clearly, and effectively articulate them, no matter what the venue.

Oprah refused to have Palin on because Oprah was “backing her candidate”. Oprah doesn’t care for Palin, and the edits won’t be kind.

Does Mrs. Palin have no other way to promote her book? Is Mrs. Palin taking the Gingrich path of doing what’s best for self promotion, regardless of cost?

Bad move.

Sarah has more smarts and more class than Oprah. She can handle Oprah easily. I think it’s a great idea for her to go on and question, perhaps, why the feminists trashed her.

It’s fine to go on Fox, but that’s like preaching to the choir. She needs to start making inroads for 2012. The female vote is important....and MANY of them (though I will never understand it) watch Oprah.

I know your question is kind of rhetorical, but we both know the answer. To sell books. And I too, share your cynicism about politicians. Wait until Palin is on the View.

I have mixed feelings on this.

After the Olympic debacle and her sickening support of Obama and rejection of Hilary Clinton I think Oprah has “jumped the shark” and she needs Sarah more than Sarah needs her. She has offended Liberal and Conservative women.

On the other hand Sarah has had her media baptism of fire and she is armed and dangerous. I don’t expect she will let Oprah get away with any cheap shots without tagging her hard across the chops.

and then Paula Deen and a whole host of others, Larry King.

This doesn’t help her be seen as serious, any more than Huckabee’s TV show makes us think he is serious.

HUGE Mistake. Palin should ignore the Jurassic media, and stick to talk radio and Fox. Fight fire with fire. Lefties (and the O is one) have only one goal - destroy that which they hate.

Bad move for Sarah Palin in my opinion. Winfrey is as much a black racist as is Obama — I thought she was OK years ago, but my take on her changed 100% during the OJ Simpson trial — the first trial — when she made it clear that the big bad white detectives had set up her boy OJ. Please.

Winfrey’s career IS on the rocks at least a bit — her magazine is not doing well and with poll numbers dropping away from Obama she is feeling it.

If I could speak to Sarah I would say DON’T DO THAT SHOW — NOT NOW, NOT EVER.

To any who might be wondering why Palin would go on Oprah, this offers her a great opportunity to reach a wider audience. The goal is to sell books. Assuming her book lays out her vision along with her biography, many new people will get to know the Sarah Palin the media has ignored. It’s a good thing.

this is false until palin spokewoman confirms this. How many times do ppl fallen for false advertising that palin will be there.

Oprah will for certainly try to sabotage Palin. Oprah is that type of person. I hope Palin knows what she’s getting into and be prepared with a few barbs of her own

It may help her sell books but if you think that she will win over any of the hardcore Oprah crowd you are mistaken. The only way that will happen is if she says she is pro- choice. Barring that, no deal.

This is a bad move.

Nah, good move. Get the baptism of fire, fury and phony out of the way early.

Sarah is going to have to face these people sooner or later.

If she can’t handle herself in a hostile interview, she’ll never deserve the nomination.

Baptism of fire, people.

Have faith.

And relax.

She be fine.

You go, Sarah. Kick some Harpo arpo.
