Do you remember during the Presidential Campaign that Oprah had on then candidate Barack Obama several times? Do you remember that she barred John McCain and company from her show? Well, I guess political differences are only so deep, as Newsday is reporting that the former governor of Alaska will appear on Oprah to plug her new book Going Rogue.
“In a world exclusive, Oprah Winfrey will interview former Alaska
governor Sarah Palin for an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to air Monday, Nov. 16, 2009. Winfrey and Palin will meet for the very first time on the episode, which will mark Palin’s first interview to discuss her upcoming book, “Going Rogue: An American Life” and her first-ever appearance on the “Oprah” show.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin burst onto the national political scene as running mate for Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Now, following her decision to step down as governor of her home state of Alaska, and on the eve of the release of her first book, Palin will speak first to Oprah in a world exclusive interview.”
I see this as ironic in a way. Rumors were going around that Palin would host a daytime TV show after the Presidential campaign and after she stepped down from Alaska’s highest office, so who knows…maybe this could be a launch into something more. Or maybe not.
