Gov. Blagojevich claims that he considered Oprah Winfrey for the infamous senate seat. But, Oprah Winfrey says she wouldn’t have taken it because she’s not interested. And if she would have been on the treadmill when she heard his pronouncement,Oprah says she would have fallen off the treadmill. Besides, she’s got enough stuff on her plate, no pun intended. Senator Oprah Winfrey. Hey, I like the ring of that. Maybe one day, Oprah Winfrey will do more than just dabble in politics. She’s already helped so many people already. That’s one promise that she wouldn’t have to make.
