Oprah Caught Between Barack and a Hard Place

9/5/2008 11:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is a war brewing behind the scenes at the Oprah Winfrey show, one that could force Oprah to break her allegiance with Barack Obama -- so Sarah Palin can get some face time.

According to the DrudgeReport.com, members of Oprah's sharply-divided staff are putting serious pressure on the talk show queen to book the first woman on a Republican ticket -- but not everybody is on-board.

A Winfrey insider tells Drudge, "Oprah's website is getting tons of requests to put her on, but Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama."

But after Sarah's star-making coming-out party, how can Oprah NOT book her? Decisions... decisions...

So far, O's peeps refused to comment.

God help us! A new born infant survived an abortion and Obama says that it costs to much to bring in another Doctor to save that child's life... my God it is worse than having a cold heart ,it is having no heart , no human compassion at all. A lot of women admire Sarah Palin very much. She did not abort her baby knowing that it had health problems and I think that this is one of the reasons why most of the liberal women hate her so much.. When they see Sarah's baby this reminds them of all the babies that they aborted and deep down in their hearts they realize that they chose to kill their babies. They choose to hate Sarah because she did the right thing and did not abort her baby. A true Christian would not vote for Obama knowing where he stands on abortion. How can we trust Barack Hussein Obama when he also has associated with radical Muslims, terrorist sympathizes, RACISTS and anti-American preachers.
