    Oprah Winfrey’s interview with former vp candidate Sarah Palin scored the talk show host her highest rating in two years.

    Monday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" drew a 8.7 household rating and 13 share -- the best since Winfrey had the entire Osmond family on the show in 2007.

    That means Palin also topped Winfrey's heavily viewed interviews with Whitney Houston at the start of the season.

    Palin is making the rounds to promote her new book, "Going Rogue," which came out Tuesday.

    Winfrey began the interview by asking Palin if she felt snubbed at not getting an invitation to appear on the show last year. Winfrey said she didn't have any candidates on her Chicago-based show during the campaign because of her support for President Barack Obama.

    Palin said she didn't feel snubbed and told Winfrey, "No offense to you, but it wasn't the center of my universe."

    Palin said in another interview broadcast Tuesday that a 2012 presidential bid is "not on my radar," but wouldn't rule out playing some role in the next presidential election.

    "My ambition, if you will, my desire is to help our country in whatever role that may be, and I cannot predict what that will be, what doors will be open in the year 2012," she told Barbara Walters.

    When asked whether she'd play a major role, the former Republican vice presidential candidate replied that "if people will have me, I will."

    I bet the liberals in the lame stream media are foaming at the mouths over this one--LOL. It wasn't long ago that Criss Mathews of Hardball on MSNBC--after finding she was writing a book--was questioning if she was able to read one. Well, Criss here's your answer. Going Rogue is the number 1 best seller in the country. I don't think Criss Mathews did as well with his book--LOL.

    Fox News ratings are up 5% while CNN is down 70+% and MSNB is down 63%. Seems there's been an awakening in America. :lol: The sleeping giant is awake and paying attention. Palin is drawing crowds every where she goes, her books are selling so fast that they can't keep enough in stock. a best seller before it even hit the shelves. She rocks and so does the tea- partiers.:lol: It's a sign of normal Americans taking their country back. :clap2::clap2: The revolt is coming soon.LOL

    Isn't Chriss Mathews the guy who gets tingly feelings running up and down his legs when he hears Obama reading the teleprompter??

    Isn't he also the guy that asked after the Fort Hood terrorist attack, " if it was against the law to contact Al Queida?? LOL

    About 10 years ago I found Mathews both informative and even entertaining. In more recent years he appears increasingly unbalanced. Could it be his diabetes perhaps? And I don't mean that to be demeaning to him - but a legit question.

    I read a while back his ratings were in dramatic decline the past couple years - though those falling ratings mirror all of MSNBC as well...
