So it seems that women everywhere are fawning over McCain's newly-minted running mate... except for Oprah. She apparently doesn't want Palin on the show. It's her show. She can do what she wants. But given the people I've talked to who are fans of Oprah, Oprah could face some serious backlash from snubbing Palin. I stand by my "meh" assessment of Palin as VP material but now even my Grandmother, who has never in her life voted for a Republican (she even voted for Mondale), is planning on voting McCain/Palin this November. I hate to break this to Oprah but it's the Oprah crowd that is so in love with Palin. Oprah would be wise to get over her political leanings and go with the flow on this one. You don't tick off the Oprah crowd. That could get ugly.
