I admit that I'm not much of an Oprah watcher. In fact, her air time here (4pm EST) might possibly be the worst time of our day ever.
It's like baby, toddler, kid, heck even mommy witching hour.
And honestly, most of the material Oprah has on these days, like OMG the woman who was mauled by the chimpanzee, I can't watch with my kids anywhere nearby.
But today I'm determined to tune in to watch the Sarah Palin interview.
During the presidential campaign, I was never really a McCain hater. And I wasn't even a huge Obama fan either.
But when Sarah Palin joined the race as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate, my vote for Obama was sealed.
It might seem ridiculous to choose a candidate based on their VP. As my husband pointed out during the election, it's hard to even remember some of the elected VPs.
And as my good friend and smart mama Punditmom pointed out during her CNN appearance, the discussion really shouldn't have been about Sarah Palin and all the 4000 things I disagree with her on (aside from the all the shady Governor bullshit and her views on sex education and abortion and gay rights and the fact that she's barely been outside her own state let alone the country and the whole situation with her pregnant daughter).
But the discussion should really have focused on the Presidential candidates.
However, if McCain kicked the bucket, we'd be left with President Palin. And I just wasn't ready to put my vote on that.
But now Palin is back, promoting her new book, and the questions about her motives and future plans are out there, hopefully for Oprah to ask. Well that and how everything she wore on the campaign trail was picked for her. Even her glasses?! Say it ain't so!
On one hand, I want to be proud that we had a female Vice Presidential candidate. But on the other, I want to hide my head in the sand to think that she's the one they picked.
So what do you think? Do you care about what's she's doing? Will you read her book? What do you think about the whole Levi Johnston trainwreck? Regardless of your political affiliations, I'd love to know your thoughts on Sarah Palin - woman and mom. I'll be talking about it (along with the Oprah interview) tonight on CNN.
