GOP Petition Drive Urges Oprah to Reconsider Palin Interview

Sep 11, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Some Republicans are launching a petition drive for the election campaign. The target? It asks Oprah Winfrey to interview GOP vice president candidate Sarah Palin on her syndicated talk show before the election.
The petition’s Web site, www.palinpetition.com, says it’s backed by a group called the Political Fish, and registered to Joshua Bolin of Augusta, Ga.
The petition followed reports that Ms. Winfrey, after deciding to personally support Sen. Barack Obama decided not to involve her TV show in the presidential campaign.
In a statement last week, Ms. Winfrey said she would love to interview Ms. Palin, the governor of Alaska, and predicted it would be a “fantastic interview,” but said it could only take place after the election.
“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,” the statement said.
The GOP petition urges Oprah to change her mind.
“Oprah Winfrey is an inspirational figure to millions of Americans, who admire her strength, resilience and force of character. She has become a role model, and an example of someone who overcame hardship and stereotypes to build the life she wanted.
“That is why we respectfully ask that Oprah reconsider her position concerning a public interview with the vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Like Oprah, Ms. Palin has carved out her own path in life, from pursuing a career in a field (and political party) dominated by men, to her difficult choice to raise a child with Down syndrome.
“In the interest of empowering women and providing them with examples of strong female leadership, we request that Oprah Winfrey arrange an interview with Sarah Palin.”
An official of Ms. Winfrey’s show did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

  1. dear Oprah:
    it is your show and your choice to invite people you want and you think deserve it. The Republican are taking women’s votes for granted just because they got a woman on their ticket. Let’s show them they are wrong and women are not that dumb. Sandra Palin doesn’t stand for anything women are looking for in education, social, environment, free choice…
    Thank you for standing up against them!
    odile

  2. Dear Oprah — I believe your stance of not using your show as a platform for any candidates is the right one. I hope you will stick to that. We’ll all look forward to a variety of political interviews after November 4. Thank you. Bonnie J.

  3. Does anyone seriously care if she’s on Oprah? I DEMAND to know why Palin is not appearing on Sallie Jesse Raphael, it’s an OUTRAGE!!!!

  4. Dear Oprah,
    It just goes to show how stupid some people really are. Those Republicans are a bunch of cry babies. Sarah Palin does not stand for anything worth while, if she did, she would have given her daughter some birth control pills or taught her daughter to keep her legs closed. I guess Sarah was too busy being at the hockey games and she didn’t have time to watch her daugher or teach her any valuable lessons. I’m a poor mother, but I knew to teach my child not to have sex until marriage. Don’t give in to those so-called watchers. Your trusted friends will continue to watch your show and buy your magazine.

  5. The Republicans are doing this as a ploy – to focus on getting Sarah Palin into more softball, touchy-feely interviews where she can appear as a tough but spunky hockey mom, and to avoid any actual questioning of her credentials. These people really don’t care if she is qualified or not. Unbelievable.

  6. Wow! The vicious hatred for democracy and freedom from these commenters is stunning! Just because a few of you prefer to slaughter the unborn I’m pretty sure that about half of the women out there are pro-life. Governor Palin has plenty to say like becoming energy self sufficient, or do you people prefer that we pay terrorist countries for their oil? Are all democrats terrorist sympathizers? I would question your patriotism but you can’t question something that was never there to begin with.

  7. I think once everyone stops caring what Oprah thinks or says, the better. If this was a white talk host who boycotted having Barack on air, the white talk host would be deemed a racist. I won’t be watching Oprah.

  8. Ms. Winfrey and her associates have the sole responsibility of inviting guests to appear on her show. Stop the HATE. Their,(the petitioners) actions is not from God.
    That mean ungodly spirit has raised it’s ugly head AGAIN. How dare they demand Ms. Winfrey to have anyone on HER SHOW. Why do THEY care? WHAT IS THEIR REAL AGENDA? There are so many other shows. Personally, I don’t watch her show. I do admire her for all of her accomplishments. It shows that she has good judgment. If her instinct is to decline a guest, then I support her 100%. NO MEANS NO.
    Control is witchcraft. If you guys believe in God as you claim…. Stop your lies, deceit, and slander. Let go and let God. Stop this petition foolishness. STOP TRYING TO CONTROL EVERYBODY.

  9. The Art of Tricknology, thats what the Republicians are masters at. Fooling the people, slanting the news, lying to the Americans and the world. Enough is enough, We all know Governor Palin is only a window dressing for the set. Ask her about the African American man who is the father of her grand child.

  10. wow- what are you afriad of oprah? Are you a politician or a talk show host? Palin is a respectable lady in and of American……so you don’t interview interesting women? Women who are in the news? Is it beause she is white? or a Republican? or what? Gee….let americans just guess.
    Poor taste Oprah, and low class. Why not label your show are the black democratice talk show. Then We ALL know why you wont have Palin be on your show.

  11. “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,”
    Oprah needs to clarify her statement to include,”…I made the decision not to use my show for any of the [other] candidates,” or,”…any of the candidates except Barack Obama.
    Oprah already used her show as a platform for a candidate. Her ratings will just continue to drop like they did after she endorsed Barack Obama. Oprah has made one thing very clear in the past year: She is only a friend of women when she needs access to their pocketbooks.

  12. I CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW SICK THIS COUNTRY HAS BECOME.
    JUST WHEN I THINK THIS COUNTRY COULD NOT STOOP ANY LOWER IN HATRED AND ANGER, AND A TRUE INTERNAL UGLINESS, I SEE THAT PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY PETITIONING TO FORCE A TALK SHOW HOST TO HAVE A GUEST JUST BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE IT. IT IS OPHRA’S PERSONAL SHOW, SHE IS NOT A NEWS PROGRAM. IF THEY HAVE SUCH A STRONG BELIEF IN WHO SHOULD BE ON INTERVIEWED ON TV THEY SHOULD GET TOGETHER AND WORK TO LAUNCH THEIR OWN SHOW, OR FORCE FOX NEWS TO INTERVIEW SARAH PALIN.
    THIS IS ALL GETTING TRULY SCARY.

  13. haha.i am a reformed democrat. i was broken-hearted when hillary wasn’t nominated. obama hussain had not proven he was worthy with his ugh ugh and yelling change every 5 min. and now? i am a republican YEAH PALIN ! SHE IS A GREAT SPEAKER…and i want a woman in the white house. oh yes it will happen..don’t you know everytime hillary shuts the door she is rolling on the floor laughing her butt off. is this a great country or what?

  14. and why should PALIN stoop so low to be a show that is so blatently bias? ow your show is out in our house.obama you are OUT MCCAIN you are IN.

  15. Oprah’s choice to not have Gov. Sarah Palin on her show speaks volumes about how little confidence she has in her hand-picked PRESIDENTIAL candidate, Barack Obama. If he can’t hold his own against the oppositions’s VICE Presidential candidate, better to keep Palin out off her show. But I suspect Sarah is going to wipe the floor with Barry & his veep, Joe Biden in many other venues, despite the best efforts of Dems to keep her under wraps. Obama/Biden are already going down in flames because they can’t handle the pressure. Must be all that LIPSTICK huh? I predict by the time McCain/Palin take their oath of office Oprah’s viewership will have fallen to Olbermann & Air America levels. That’s what happens when people glimpse behind the curtain to find the Wizard is nothing but a fake. Obamamania is already in America’s rear view mirror. Move along people, there’s nothing here to see but an empty suit…

  16. This is what we’re talking about?
    Have we heard about any of the small problems in our economy? Do we care that we are embroiled in two wars? About failed energy policies, unsustainable consumption, crumbling infrastructure, deep-rooted political and industrial corruption, compromised food supplies, broken health care?
    It is our responsibility as citizens to demand that *every* candidate address the serious issues that the next administration will have to face. The disgrace here is not that Oprah Winfrey, a television talk show host, declines to interview the candidates. The disgrace is that Palin declines to allow legitimate media to engage her in discourse that will display her views on the real issues we face.
    Demand that your political figures explain themselves to you. Question their responses. Compare them to their real records. Be a citizen.
    If we don’t, we deserve what we get.
    Wake up.

  17. Gov. Palin just did a long interview with Charlie Gibson, the 1st of many interviews scheduled. Funny how Gibson & the rest of the main stream media never asked Barry O where he’d traveled outside the U.S. or why he won’t release his college grades/records or why he associates with a known/admitted terrorist who bombed the Pentagon & Capitol? We KNOW LESS ABOUT OBAMA AFTER 19 MONTHS OF CAMPAIGNING THAN WE DO AFTER ONLY 2 WEEKS ABOUT SARAH PALIN. He’s all smoke & mirrors. Style instead of substance. He can’t handle the pressure now: he’s all flustered and off-message because he was caught off-guard by Palin’s enthusiastic support AND HE REFUSES TO DEBATE McCAIN (although he says otherwise). Without the press shielding their precious candidate from the tough & probing questions, he’d fall like the house of cards he is. Screw Oprah. Sarah Palin doesn’t need her show to win this election. She’s going to kick both Obama & Biden’s a$$e$ for the next 56 days. Hey Barry, hope you & Joe are practicing your backstroke. I’m just sayin…

  18. On this forum and almost every other one I’ve visited over the last month… it seems to be the same thing. One or two republicans will post many times under different names to try and make it look like their opinion is the majority. Americans are not that dumb, we see through it. We aren’t going to be tricked and coerced like in 2000 and 2004. We’ll be driving back and forth to polling stations… I swear to god if you try and disenfranchise and cheat this time… you will be shut down. One voice – one person – one post… not any sneaky tricks and illusions.

  19. If you’re angry at Oprah for not inviting someone to appear on her show, then you can punish her by not watching her show anymore or maybe write nasty letters to her sponsors. That’ll teach mean old Oprah a huge lesson … not. Keep up the good work with that petition, as it should help you to learn that you can’t buy everything that you think you should have in an election, and you can’t intimidate everyone into doing your bidding.

  20. I think Jerry Springer would be a good alternative format for Gov. Palin. Like Oprah and Gibson, he wouldn’t pose any hardball questions, and they are great at finding show topics that are as out of touch with reality as she seems to be with her delusional “bridge to nowhere” nonsense. I mean, if you decide that you don’t want the money that you asked for because the issue has become unpalatable, then can we at least have our money back? You don’t have to admit that you originally wanted it, and you can keep on lying if you want, just give it back. I’m not suggesting the Governor get her Jerry beads, though it might give her a bump in the polls.

  21. I would not be so offended by Oprah not having Palin on if she did not publically endorse Obama. Once she did that, I feel she and her show became fair game for dealing with the other canidates. If you ask me, Obama’s 9 months in the senate does not qualify him with enough experience to become president but that doesn’t seem to matter as much as Palin’s 2 years as governor. Perhaps Obama has some more experience from somewhere else that I have not heard about. If not, then when it comes to experience Palin seems to have more. I think she has a good head on her shoulders and could run this country if something did happen to McCain. She may not know everything about being Vice President but that is like any other job. There’s a learning curve that everyone needs in order to know exactly how to handle every situation, no matter what job it is. If Oprah didn’t want anything to do with the other canidates, then she shouldn’t have openly endored Obama.

  22. Oprah hasn’t had ANY of the candidates on. The last time she had Obama on (Oct 2006) was BEFORE he was a candidate, so I agree the Palin interview should wait until AFTER the election. Palin should be doing tough interviews with people like Chris Mathews and Meet the Press instead of entertainment shows. Palin needs to explain why she cut funding for pregnant teens, high school dropouts, why she sued the government to take polar bears off the endangered species list, why she believes it’s okay to shoot wolves from the air, why she doesn’t believe in global warming, why she doesn’t believe in evolution.

  23. Chris Mathew is obama sucker who does not have any right qualifications to conduct interview. Global Waring is Myth.. All the current scientific studies have proved it. it is just a secret plan to make tons of money for some big companies. Pregnant teens needs to learn how to make money & put the food on table for the kids. They made a choice to have sex then they should take the responsibilities as adult and face the real world. Teens needs to learn hard way. The way the rules are created in the country it is impossible to discipline a child/teens in this country.
    Ophra can have whom ever she wants to be on her show. Period. Why do you all beg her? She thinks, she is God of the show. Let her be. But make no mistake that the people/viewers made her rich & super star.

  24. Sarah’s scary.oprah probally afraid she’ll get shot by sarahcuda

  25. Why would she do it? So Palin could go on her show and spout the well-rehearsed right-wing talking points? Did anyone watch the Charlie Gibson interview? This woman is a joke. It was like we were watching the last question at a beauty pageant. She constantly repeated herself with her memorized lines and had absolutely no idea what the “Bush Doctrine” of pre-emptive strikes was…Charlie had to tell here. WAKE UP! Do we really want this political stunt to be a heartbeat away from leader of the free world?

  26. Oprah, I never watched your show, yet of course I’m aware your popularity and endorsement of Barack O’bama. As a non-partisan person, more interested in bigger issues than U.S. politics — I find it very wrong of Democrats to be worried about someone with arguably more executive experience at the bottom of a ticket, than Barack OBama who isn’t a heartbeat from the Presidency, he may be the actual President. I’m from IL and there are stand up comics from here with more executive experience than Barack Obama, and the Democrats know it. They’re afraid of the popularity of Sarah Palin which I don’t think she has enough experience either to be President, but I’m fixated on John McCain dying as the Democrats are now all over. Biden and McCain are much more Presidential and Obama’s lack of experience would be a disaster for this country. This whole criticism of Palin is so false and partisan — and the seems as if Obama and Democrats were taken way off guard by the Palin pick — instead of this wonderful extension to “Women’s” advancement in the Politcal arena — her opponents and the press treat with Sexism that I haven’t seen in decades (worse than with Hillary, which was bad enough). Wake up Guys, we’re the laughing stock of the world — now that Women in America have a chance to shine in the political world, you’re tearing it all down because she’s not from your political party??? How shallow have we become? I praise the Democrats who either don’t vote at all if they wanted Hillary or if they cross over and vote for a Woman, even if she doesn’t agree with everything you agree with. As far as Oprah — she’s a Democrat and it’s her show — she’s wrong, she’ll lose millions dollars for this, but she’s a billionaire. We know Oprah — she doesn’t care as much you think she does, get on with your life instead idolizing a woman who could really care less about yours. I’ll leave it that as she’s a powerful figure in Chicago.

  27. Although I will be voting for the McCain/Palin Ticket would like to see Sarah Palin interviewed on the Oprah Winfrey Show, I acknowledge Ms Winfrey’s right to have who she wants on her show when she wants them should they agree to. It is after all, called “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for a reason. When you get your own television show, you can decide who you would like to interview.

  28. Although I’m not surprised by the comments expressed by the Republicans, I am disappointed. Once again, you’ve attempted to make this about race and sex. Why are you comparing Obama & Palin? The race is between Obama & McCain. Last I heard Palin was running for VP? Is it because you know McCain is not the best candidate for President and (God forbid) at his age likely not to finish a term so that Palin would have to become President? It would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic. Try addressing the true match here: Obama vs. McCain and Biden vs. Palin. Stop trying to cause dissension among the minorities and women by (as usual) pitting them against one another. And let us not fall for the same old schemes used in the past to keep the good ole boy network in place. It is time for a change! And I will continue to support Oprah. She is quite right to not allow herself and her show to be put in the midst of this political maneuvering. Go Oprah!

  29. The only reason Oprah would have Palin on her show is because Oprah is worried about loosing some of her audience and thus only make 47 million per year instead of 50 million. If she caves into the Republican demands then she doesn’t deserve the respect she now commands. She’s already expressed her support for Obama and derailed Hilary’s campaign. Why should she help Palin? So what if a bunch of low brow trailer trash Republican women won’t tune into to her show. Perhaps some other smart network can capitalize on these Republican womens disenchantment with Oprah and give them the option to watch re-runs of Archie Bunker, Roseanne or Jerry Springer. Then they’ll have a chance to tune into Palin’s wavelength. It will be just like being with Palin herself. Of course, they could watch Homer Simpson and dream of having their own private Barbq with Palin. Duh!
    Its a sad day when the average American thinks that they are smart enough to lead America or that their next door neighbor is qualified to do so. Personally I want someone who’s a lot smarter than myself to run this country. But I think Palin would make an excellent Jack in the Box store manager if Jack tapped her for the nomination.

  30. I personally do not watch Oprah, but has anyone even READ the petition? No one is forcing Oprah to do anything, it is merely a suggestion. Isn’t that our responsibility as voters? We should be educated voters and unfortunately most of America probably watches Oprah instead of CNN or Fox news. Both sides should be equally represented. If Oprah doesn’t want Palin on her show fine, but she should not have publically endorsed Senator Obama. Someone actually commented Sandra Palin? Do they even know anything about her, probably not if they can’t even get her name right. And to the person, to quote her own comment “poor mother” who suggested Sarah Palin tell her daughter to shut her legs, have you not listened to Senator Obama that families are off limits? My personal opinion is that most of the negative commenters are upset that there is actually over 40,000 signatures in just a few days and McCain has a slight lead in some of the polls.

  31. Republicans have already shown toxic attitudes towards our Constitution, our troops returning to poor care, New Orleans, our schools. And now they want to sink their hands into Oprah! Enough!

  32. This is just another ploy by the republican party to attempt to influence the thoughts of Americans by attacking or freedom of choice. It is Oprah’s right and privilege to have on her show whoever she chooses. It’s so interesting how easily people cry racism when they have no other foundation to mount their argument on. The truth is, Oprah’s decision to not have Ms. Palin or any other candidate on her show at this time is her perogative. It may indeed be politically influenced but clearly not racism. I hope that the republican’s will soon stop calling foul at every chance they get and focus on the issues that are most important to the future of Americans. NO MORE LIPSTICK, RACISM, SEXISM rhetoric…PLEASE! ENOUGH!

  33. Oprah is a very insightful woman. It is great she made the decision early on that she would not use her TV show as a political platform. We should not forget Sarah Palin is only a distraction. Hats off to you Oprah.

  34. Oprah, if were Hillary Clinton would you have her on your show?????You provide a school for young ladies in Africa because they are supressed. But by not allowing Sarah Palin the opportunity to be on your show you are supressing the American woman. Sarah Palin is news. She has broken through the glass ceiling and as a woman you should show case her contributes to WOMANKIND.

  35. Personally, I would like to see how Sarah would fare on SNL. Can she adlib, or is she just another overly scripted Rove puppet?

  36. This is all a distraction from the horrible 8 years of GOP rule ruining the US internally and abroad.
    They had the presidency and the congress for so long and squandered everything Bill Clinton left for the good.
    Obama-Biden is a much better choice the GOP ticket and even they know it.
    John voted 90% with President Bush and flipped on the good positions he used to take before he literally joined the “dark side” LOL. And his VP nom is sooo much like George Bush in that dimwitted way that I can only hope those voters who went for a “berr-drinking buddy” type don’t fall the pseudo-“hockey mom” bull too. A big Rovian distraction. Don’t fall for AGAIN, my fellow Americans.
    I’ll be so glad when this election’s over — and relieved should we be fortunate enough to have an Obama-Biden administration in place.

  37. As a leaning Democrat/independent voter, I’m less concerned about Palin on Oprah. Bigger issue for me is to reconcile Obama’s changing positions as his campaign progresses. I liked his message early in the primaries, but now it seems he’s willing to capitulate to the popular positions to gain the White House.
    If Obama’s moved off his early positions, I’ll probably go for McCain then. Might not agree with all of his positions, but I know he’ll push back against both parties to do what he thinks is right for this country.
    Sorry Barack. You had me at first, but then lost me when you became like everyone else.

  38. It is reported that Oprah stated, “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.”
    ++++++++++++++
    If this quote is true, then oprah winfrey is a hypocrite. Amazingly, her hypocrisy fly in the face of several years worth of diatribes from winfrey herself.
    I challenge those with any winfrey show’s on Tivo to go back and specifically listen to what she has said in the past about people who do exactly what she is doing now, which she states that they are being hypocrites/hypocritical. yet she nows does the exact same thing and wants to spread the opinion or view that what she is doing is different some how?
    As well, if this quote is true, winfrey doesn’t understand what “using her show as a platform” means as she most certainly used her show as platform for the candidate obama, a platform for other liberal political causes, and a platform promotes fringe religious beliefs.
    oprah, PUHLEASE…. if you don’t want to have someone come on the show then just admit it, but don’t even much try to play that you have not used your show for promoting candidates as well as other liberal, politically socialist, and outer fringe religious causes.
    Say it straight oprah, we will understand the cold hard truth about your political affiliations and globalist worldview, but only if you stop being hypocritical.

  39. Does the GOP really think it’s a GOOD IDEA for Palin to go on Oprah?
    They may as well petition for her to be interviewed on Keith Olbermann’s show, for the kind of reception she would receive…

  40. WHETHER YOU ARE DUMBOCRATS OR REPUBLICANS? IT SHOULD MAKE NO DIFFERENCE WHEN IT COMES TO OPERAS’ CHOICE TO HAVE THE TRUE SARAH PALIN OR JOHN MCCAIN ON HER SHOW. I WILL NO LONGER TURN HER SHOW ON BECAUSE NOW I SEE HER TRUE COLORS AS WELL AS THE LION IN SHEEPS CLOTHING THAT IS RUNNING AGAINST MCCAIN! WHAT ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF OPERA? THAT JUST MAYBE SARAH WILL HAVE SOMETHING HONEST TO SAY THAT MAY SINK INTO THE MINDS OF THE UNDECIDED VOTERS. “W A K E U P A M E R I C A !” IF YOU ARE VOTING FOR OBAMA, YOU ARE JUST PLAIN STUPID OR CANNOT THINK FOR YOURSELF AND EITHER GOT THROUGH LIFE ON HANDOUTS OR WANT TO. IF OPERA CAN DO IT FOR OBAMA, SHE COULD DO IT FOR SARAH PALIN!! BUT THEN AGAIN IT WILL MOST LIKELY BE DONE IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE SHOW AND THE PRESS WILL TURN IT INTO A FIASCO AGAINST HER! WHY DON’T YOU JUST HAVE HER ON AND ASK HER SIMPLE THINGS ABOUT HER LOVING FAMILY LIKE THE PRESS DOES FOR OBAMA AND HIS WIFE WHENEVER HE IS ON TV IN AN INTERVIEW? NOTHING HARD TO ANSWER THERE, RIGHT!? WHAT A WASTE. I JUST P R A Y FOR SARAH AND HER FAMILY THAT THIS WHOLE MESS OF LIES AND EVIL DOESN’T EFFECT HER. SHE IS REAL AND OPERA YOU NO LONGER ARE!………..

  41. GET OVER IT…….
    Obama was a guest on Oprah’s show in January 2005 and October 2006, before he announced his bid for the presidency. Oprah has not had any of the presidential candidates on her show since they began their campaigns for the White House.
    Stop using the race card…It’s a what til your elected thing…not a black or white thing.

  42. ….AND It’s her show…you couldn’t have made Donahue cave…so his mentee wouldn’t either.

  43. There is a serious & scary track record here. Our democracy is at serious jeapordy with McCain Palin and their looney neo con supporters. Pressure Police Commissioner when he won’t fire a trooper, fire librarian when she won’t ban books, and now try to pressure a corporation’s CEO to program their business according to their political whims! THIS IS SCARY!
    THESE CONSERVATIVES ARE ACTING MORE FASCIST EVERYDAY!

  44. Anyway, who says Palin would even be interested in going on Oprah? 1) I hardly think Palin cares, she is extremely busy, and 2) it would be a biased interview (as Oprah is a Democrat, and in love with Obama).

  45. SAY NO TO PALIN COMING ON YOUR SHOW OPRAH.
    THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY AND YOU HAVE CHOICES.
    I THOUGHT YOUR PICK WAS OBAMA.
    IF YOU LET HER COME ON YOUR SHOW, McCain/ Palin
    WILL TRY TO DISTROY OBAMA!
    THESE ARE NOT THE PEOPLE THAT WE WANT TO RUN OUR COUNTRY. LOOK AT IT NOW FROM BUSH/McCAIN.

  46. I don’t think Oprah should Interview her,she is backing Obama, and that is her choice, you vote for who you want, and they are just stupid if they think she going too. There are alot of talk host out there why don’t she go to another one like ellen. The only reason they want Oprah to do the interview is because she is backing Obama, if she wasn’t they wouldn’t even ask her to do the interview. Oprah stick to your guns, you have just as much experience as palin, you should of run for vp……I think you would do a better job, and I also think Obama should pick Hillary as secretary of State………

  47. Hillary for Secretary of State, that would blow any chance that Palin ever had if Obama did that. Obama pick Hillary for that job!!!!!!!

  48. When you are backing and supporting Obama or anyone for that matter, you don’t go interview someone that is running against him, how crazy is that. Have President Bush do the interview he has some free time and they think alike on the same issues

  49. It is not a matter of political grandstanding that Palin should be on the show, it is because she is a woman who has been nominated as VP for the Repulican Party and that my friends is a first. If the shoe were on the other foot, there is no doubt in my mind that Oprah would want to interview her.
    As well, how many times have the Obama’s been on Oprahs show.
    Yes it is her show, but to disrespect the achievement of someone of her own gender is pathetic. She can have her on and not even talk politics, but talk about the personal side of her life with the family and how they are able to cope being a governor and a mother of five. She should have Todd on as well so that he can tell his side of the story to.

  50. Since Oprah endorsed Barack Obama for President, she’s afraid to have any other candidate on her show (McCain or Palin) as it might give them a boost in the polls and surpass her favored Obama. I’ve discontinued watching her show because of this controversy – she should have kept out of the political picture.

  51. I understand that Oprah did not have Hillary Clinton on her show and that she did not have Obama after he had declared his candidacy. She also said she would NOT use her show as a platform for declared candidates. I do not watch Oprah and am going by information I’ve read. If this information is accurate, it sounds fairly clear that Oprah said no—so are we talking about yet another Right Wing attempt to control our media? I expect that the usual will happen: right-wingers will bring economic pressure on the show’s sponsors and Oprah will be asked to give in. Well, I doubt she needs the money. I would like to see her stand up to the Right. If Palin wants coverage, she might think of giving a press conference. The world is waiting.

  52. So, let’s see now. It’s not OK for Oprah to have Obama on because they are both black so that means she is racist, but it would be OK—recommended, in fact—if she has Palin on just because Palin is a woman, and that wouldn’t be sexist. I’m confused.
    In any case, it sounds to me as if Sarah Palin would be better suited for The Jerry Springer Show. She could bring her knocked-up daughter and the reluctant boyfriend; her shotgun; documentation of her own marriage showing that she, too, was pregnant when she got married; subpoenas investigating the odd firing of a supervisor connected with her brother-in-law-the-State-Trooper who tasered somebody in the family; and, oh yes, maybe we’ll hear some more about the story that Track didn’t join the Army out of patriotism but was given the choice of Army or jail by a judge, after vandalizing a bunch of school buses, while drunk. Tell us why Track was sent away from home for Senior Year. And don’t forget some Reverend Wright-type footage of our Sarah’s church, complete with people passing into fits and speaking in tongues, the preacher casting out demons, and everybody anticipating The Rapture.

  53. Oprah is a racist pure & simple even though she tries to pretend she is miss goody 2 shoes. Palin doesn’t need to be interviewed by her.She is a great example of womanhood, motherhood & successful business woman in anything she does. She doesn’t need Miss Oprah to try & put her down.

  54. JOSEPHINE-STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR FAT MAMA OPRAH. SHE IS A PRO-BLACK CANIDATE. IT DOESNT MATTER WHO IS RUNNING FOR OFFICE, SHE IS FINALLY SHOWING HER TRUE SELF. A BLACK RACIST, RICH WOMAN WHO IS WANTING TO FURTHER HER BLACK AGENDA. I AT ONE TIME THOUGHT HIGHLY OF HER, BUT NOW I SEE HER AS WELL AS YOU A BLACK RACIST THAT YOU KNOW YOU ARE. OBLABA HUSSIN OBLAMA WILL NEVER WIN THIS ELECTION BECAUSE HE IS NOT FOR THE PEOPLE HE CLAIMS TO BE FOR. HE IS ANTI-JEW AND ANTI-AMERICAN.ANTI-MILITARY AND IS ONLY PRO-GIVE-A-WAY, PRO=BLACK, AND PRO-MUSLIM. IT IS EASY TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES WITH HIM. GOD BLESS AMERICA, GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS, GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY. B HUSSIN WILL NOT PREVAIL IN NOVEMBER. HE WILL FAIL BECAUSE HE IS KIN TO THE BEAST.

  55. Well Oprah is one of the most powerful woman in the world. But that doesn’t mean that she is always right. But her opinions carry a lot of weight. It is a dilema, for anyone to choose whether should we be lead by leaders who would lead by experience or by gender or by the color of their skin? When Mr. Obama started his concept of change I was on board. But lately, after he snubbed Hillary Clinton. I am sorry but I wondered. If a MAN will ignore a very powerful and influencial woman like Hillary how sure am I that this man will care about my well being. Women had been ignored for centuries and even now even in middle east women are still treated like property. So even I will hate myself I am leaning on voting with the evil McCaine. There is an old saying; ” To march in to hell for a heavenly cause.” And if it means to vote for McCain just for a woman to be in office so be it

  56. I am so sorry to say this but Mr. Obama is a pretentious person.Who does not have his own back bone. Why? Okay, I hope it is not just me when his patriotism was questioned regarding why he is not wearing a lapel of the american flag? His responsed was and please correct me if I am wrong, He said his patriotism will not be measured whether he wore a flag in his clothes. But after a few days and the polls showed that his numbers went down. BOOM! wore the flag. Another time when his religion was questioned. Okay fine he is a christian, but my question is how many times in his speech or forum that he even metioned God or God bless America? I know it’s a cliche ( not sure about the spelling) But Mr. Obama please convince me that you are who you say you are. Wear a cross or something.
    When his bein commander in chief as foreign or international representative was brought up. He went to europe and the middle east just to say that he can converse with other world leaders. But does he really had to do that? Just to prove a point? Was he just thinking of himself or the american people? Thirdly about the war in Iraq, okay fine he did not vote for the war. And Hillary did. Well to become aleader one should learn from mistakes. Whether that decision was right or wrong at the time one should lived with it. And Hillary did, and that my friend is a mark of a great leader one that had learned from experience. I heard we are winning in the war in Iraq. Mr Obama you are not a leader what you are is an opportunist, granted that America needs a leader, granted that our government had failed us, granted that the land is begging for change but you are not that leader whom we need. I used to look up to you I thought you were the chosen one the annointed one that will lead us to the land of promise. To free us from the bondage of anarchy. As I said you are just one of so many that will say and do anything to sell the american people a false hope.

  57. How ironic that the so called pillars of society whom will carry the voice of the people lies in the shoulders of a Celebrity. Like Oprah, i often wondered why celebrities are so celebrated and are even given the respect that they do not deserved. Is Oprah much better than a social worker, or my father who’ve worked as a letter carrier for 20 years, or even my brother who had served this country in Iraq. Or even a homeless person or even a crack addict. By the way Oprah did say she use to be a cracked head when she interviewed Michael Jackson in the 90’s right?
    Not that will go against her. But remember the great riot in LA back in the 90’s when Oprah went in the midst of the criciss and she asked the black community why some of them looted and steal? One of the black man answered Oprah Well we are not millionaire like you and you don’t even lived here who are you to judged us???
    How influencial Oprah is? Well she endorse that book that became a movie and she begged her loyal supporters to see the movie. The books turned movie FLOPPED, not even the great Oprah can persuade the people from her book club to see the movie she personally endorse. Oh, another thing in her kingdom women have more chance of career advancement than men. I think she was sued number of times for that issue.
    So, why in Gods name should I listen to an ex cracked head that have a lot of money? She is just like those rappers who have fame and money but no substance.

  58. I have a very stupid question why would OBAMA choose a vice president who is a character from Star Wars? Isn’t Biden one of the Darth sith in the franchise of George Lucas Star Wars? Lord Darth BIDEN???? Can anyone please tell me that I am not imagining this. Like when they name one of the character in the last Terminator movie Scott Peterson which was the same name as that murderer in Modesto. So they had to change the name of the fictional character in the movie. So my question is WHY OBAMA chose a LORD BIDEN from star wars? He is nuts?????? Just asking I am an idiot sometimes but I will vote for OBAMA because it rimes with OSAMA.

  59. Oprah Winfrey is an amazing hypocrite! Oprah says she is in favor of a bill aimed at child predators. However, Oprah claims that the head of a child predator organization speaks for Jesus Christ in his book, “A Course in Miracles”. Oprah promotes this book and of course by inference, pedophile leader, William Thetford everyday on her radio show. The evidence of women testifying before Federal Hearings about their sexual abuse as children by Oprah’s championed author’s organization can be found by a link to a website: http://www.NewSpiritualBible.com/index6

  60. the truth is finally comming to pass. most americans are finally starting to see what b. hussain oblaba is all about. he is a first class deceiver of men , women and and working folk. oblaba is all about himself and his own special interest and about his own way of being. he cares not for the common man or woman but what will make him a icon of the u s of a. we will not be fooled by a imposter, we want the real deal and that is john and sarah. god bless america now and forever -jrj-

  61. People.. DROP THE HYPE.
    The Reb party teams are advising Palin not to do any more shows with anyone who does not endore her– until it’s towards the end. Palin is going to stick in safer grounds now after that Gibson infamous deal- ok?
    So how in the world can you guys keep blaming Oprah? Oprah has been beyond fair- she has remained neutral. She is not having any candidates on her show as of now till after her elections. Once the elections started, she could have used her show to hype up Obama and diss the rivals– but she does not. Admit it– some of you are mad she does not endore Palin.. and that’s just stepping on her rights as a citizen.
    Oprah is someone, who despite all this, still wishes you love, light and happiness.. Thanks, but no thanks, for misunderstanding her.
    Obsessed people cannot keep using Oprah and sheer logical non-sense in this emotional blackmail thing to let out negative things in their psyche. If you don’t understand Oprah.. well.. that’s fine. But being obsessed over her is STRANGE!

  62. This petition only proves what I have always heard about Republicans and that is “Not all Republicans are stupid, just most of them” What the GOP should be doing is starting a petition to get Sarah Palin and John McCain to stop spreading lies all over the airways in America

  63. Sarah should not be on Oprah. She is horrible, inhumane person. You should read about all the horrible things she supports. How could you support someone like her?? Read what kind of person she is, do some research: http://worldevolved.blogspot.com/search/label/Sarah%20Palin

  64. Saint Oprah continues to try and be in control. When are people going to realize it’s all about Oprah and Oprah’s agenda. Even THE VIEW gives time too all of the candidates, regardless of the fact that most of them are democrats.

  65. Pssst….don’t tell anyone yet but I heard … that Sarah Palin’s daughter is appearing on Maury Povich for the all important paternity test…woo hoo.
    Why do people laugh at Repubs?
    Because they’re so damn pathetic.

  66. Oprah’s decision to endorse Obama and not conduct an interview with Palin is because she like most black women, who will not admit, are more racial than the average redneck white male.

  67. The major difference is that the redneck white males are stupid and voice their opions in a hateful demeanor.

  68. Oprah
    Don’t let these republicans tell you who to
    have on your show. Is your show that you build up on your efforts, And respectfully brought it to one of the No1 in America.. What we all admire most about you. You don’t jump, When they say jump.
    Keep up your guard.. Republicans can be very tricky.

  69. Oprah
    Don’t give in.

  70. all mass media broadcasts should just leave alll polictal canidadates out and only run their promotions. it is very unfair because they over shadow many others. there was over 50 or possible people for president however most people only knew of 2; a black nazi and a dumb redneck.
    the only reason i can see why they asked oprah was because she had all ready stated that she was going to support Obama and the media ran with it, and posted it everywhere. Ultimatley the republicans were trying to gain any momentium they had left. think about it: black guy vs white guy, and the last president (white guy) screwed up alot. so everyone went with black guy and last election every one knew he messed up but reelected him anyway. thats why this (2008) election the democrat ticket was between a chick and black guy.

  71. , superb post, I truly enjoyed reading it. This post gave me the push to try my own article, please check out my article by clicking my name at the top of this post, thanks

  72. Thank you for a great post

  73. Wonderful to read!

  74. I smoked for many years and quitting tobacco appeared to be harder than you can imagine. I used the many stop smoking techniques however not anything worked for me. Then I saw the electric cigarettes. The electric cigarette utilizes a nicotine solution which holds nothing but nicotine. Not any smelly smoke at all. They have already luckily improved my life.

  75. Recently been searching on the internet for a few useful websites and found quite a good one.

  76. Thanks for your visiting this http://www.hello-free.com/freebies online Free WebSite.

  77. I know this is really boring and you are skipping to the next comment, but I just wanted to throw you a big thanks – you cleared up some things for me!

  78. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  79. Colton Tooley, 19, was in fact the gunman mixed up in episode from the University or college of Texas today, what’s happening to The country?

  80. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  81. iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  82. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

  83. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  84. This is where Christian Louboutin replica products bought from Replica Handbags can help you in being ahead. Without compromising on quality, you can give a new meaning to the term “affordable” in the designer world.

  85. You are such an amazing writer. Wishing you a strength and peace that surpasses all understanding as you continue to walk the high road … you are amazing, and I honor you for being YOU! You represent grace and dignity … with a smile that melts anyone blessed to be on the receiving end of it. God Bless you Always, Carrie!!!!

  86. Thank God we have a common interest, thank you for sharing, you’re a good author. Hope to see more of your articles. Juno sincere.

  87. A bomb planted inside of a auto has exploded outdoors a retail industry complex in Londonderry, inflicting vast harm to local shops, police have said. So who needs Muslims?

  90. Keep focusing on your blog. I love how we can all express our feelings. This is an extremely nice blog here 🙂

  91. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  92. Can you write another post about this subject simply because this article was a bit hard to fully grasp?
