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?
