Mark your calendars: Palin set to appear on Oprah Nov. 16

Newsday’s TV Zone blog reports (via Greg Pollowitz):

[From the Oprah press release] “In a world exclusive, Oprah Winfrey will interview former Alaska governor Sarah Palin for an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to air Monday, Nov. 16, 2009. Winfrey and Palin will meet for the very first time on the episode, which will mark Palin’s first interview to discuss her upcoming book, “Going Rogue: An American Life” and her first-ever appearance on the “Oprah” show.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin burst onto the national political scene as running mate for Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Now, following her decision to step down as governor of her home state of Alaska, and on the eve of the release of her first book, Palin will speak first to Oprah in a world exclusive interview.”

As I’m sure you remember, there was a minor dustup last year when Oprah refused to bring Palin, the first female GOP VP nominee, on her show for an interview in spite of “Hoperah’s” open campaigning for candidate Barry O. That’s apparently all water under the bridge now, but it will be interesting to see what – if any – “gotcha” questions Oprah has for Palin.

I’m sure she’ll do just fine. It’s been over a year since the “bad interview” week she had shortly after accepting the veep nomination from John McCain, and she seems sharper than ever now that she’s no longer being plagued by bogus ethics complaint after bogus ethics complaint from bitter political opponents. She’s got time to focus and prepare, something she lacked last year.

BTW, have you pre-ordered her book yet? :)
