    BIG DILEMMA: OPRAH BALKS AT HOSTING SARAH PALIN; STAFF DIVIDED
    Fri Sep 05 2008 08:55:46 ET

    Oprah Winfrey may have introduced Democrat Barack Obama to the women of America -- but the talkshow queen is not rushing to embrace the first woman on a Republican presidential ticket!

    Oprah's staff is sharply divided on the merits of booking Sarah Palin, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

    "Half of her staff really wants Sarah Palin on," an insider explains. "Oprah's website is getting tons of requests to put her on, but Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama."

    One executive close to Winfrey is warning any Palin ban could ignite a dramatic backlash!

    It is not clear if Oprah has softened her position after watching Palin's historic convention speech.

    Last year, Winfrey blocked an appearance by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, timed to a promotional tour of his autobiography.

    Oprah and executive producer Sheri Salata, who has contributed thousands of dollars to Obama's campaign, refused requests for comment.

    What, this is just like Fox not giving Obama all the time he wants to push his agenda.

    Disgusting

    :lol:

    yes, this will surely ruin her career...good things she has all those billions to fall back on.

    I think Oprah SHOULD have Palin on. I think it would be a fantastic opportunity for her to ask her questions in a more relaxed setting about issues that REALLY matter to WOMEN!

    I'm no Oprah fan but... when she had Obama on it was in connection with his book The Audacity of Hope. It wasn't political. An appearance by Palin would be nothing but political.......... Only my opinion, of course.

    Yes, after years of begging Hillary to run.

    As was said, race trumps gender.
