Illinois’ beleaguered Gov. Rod Blagojevich said today that when he was deciding who would take President Obama’s Senate seat he considered appointing talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, a suggestion that Winfrey says left her “amused.”
It makes sense to me. Who has more money than Oprah?
P.S. I heard a guy on the radio today mocking this as ridiculous. Of course, it is. But what’s more ridiculous is that, if she ran, she’d probably win.
Laugh if you like . . . but then explain to me why anyone took Caroline Kennedy seriously as a possible Senator.
