In a new interview, Oprah compliments Sarah and her new show before coming down on her political ambitions!

Oprah Winfrey may be a fan of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, but it seems like she is not so keen on her possible run for President of the United States! In a new interview with Parade Oprah was asked if she was scared at the prospect of Sarah running for President and responded, “It does not scare me because I believe in the intelligence of the American public.” Ouch!

It was not all bad as Oprah said of Sarah’s show, “I don’t know her so I can’t speak to [whether or not she'll be a candidate]. But I would say that America’s going to fall in love with her from [her reality series, Sarah Palin's Alaska]. When I saw that first episode, I went, ‘Whoa! She is charming and very likable.'”

What do you think about Oprah’s comments HollywoodLifers? Was she too harsh or totally right?

Sarah and Oprah are both Journalism majors, allegedly, so perhaps Sarah could learn a couple pointers from a real journalist. Study Oprah’s comment about the Americam public being too smart to vote for Sarah. The statement is clear, concise, brief and packs quite a punch. No referencve to guns or blood or batards or lamestream media. It doesn’t insult the Obamas, or anyone for that matter, I believe it’s factual, she “owned” it and she didn’t post it on facebook or twitter. She said it during an actual interview where she was subject to being questioned. Sarah, this is how the big girls (literally and figuratively) do it. Study it.

Oprah’s right, she’s a well educated heavy reader and student of history… there’s not enough stupid people in America to elect Palin President!.. And all that talk about Obama being “a horrible man… worst Pres. in history.. trying to destroy America” = idiocy! President Obama deserves your praise for taking the helm of a wrecked, burning ship AFTER it was run aground by it’s previous captain [and his pirate friends]. Obama can’t work miracles, but he and the Dems. helped stave off another depression, he saved the American auto industry; all while he had 1.2 trillion dollar defecit wating for him – a projected 7 trillion from Bush’s unfunded tax cuts, two wars and presc. drug bill!. He/they started health care on a better track, reformed [some of] the wall st. casino, etc. But his haters are too poisoned by politics or too lazy to use a search engine to it… Maybe that’s how many of them ended up voting AGAINST their own intrests 7 weeks ago! Folks gladly lined up, carrying buckets of [corporately funded] TEA to their own drowning pools.

Harsh????? In this political climate? I think not. As to the seemingly begging question of who is more qualified to give a political opinion, Oprah knows sooooooooo much more about American history, politics, and where we sit today than Sarah Palin ever will. I only wish that I could one, meet her (if only for 1 second), and two convince her to run some day. Maybe bid for Mayor of Chicago?

Oprah is a big mouth know it all, she thinks her word is the word of god more or less, as for politics, we have to thank oprah for the mess this country is in thanks to all of the support she gave Obozo when he was running for president, Palin is a True american and anytime she disses Obozo “QUEEN OPRAH” is up in arms

Yeah NOBAMA is a horrible man and the worst president in the history of the united states. He doesn’t even know how many states are in the usa. Oprah and all those other bleeding heart liberals are the reason for this country being the mess it is today.

As a foreigner, I can say your country was a mess before Obama took power. You were doing amazing after Clinton left and began the decline during the Bush years. I’m right leaning, even I have admit Bush destroyed America.

Nikki, how about keeping your opinion to yourself and taking care of whereever you are from…your foreign opinion means nothing to us.
Obama is trying to destroy the USA.

Some where in Alaska a village is missing 3 idiots. Nikki I happen to agree with you though it seems some in America have turned a blind eye to facts. Oprah summed it up nicely in her comment though some posters here are trying to disprove her faith in her country.
