Oprah Could Go Brit for Obama

Blimey! Could Oprah Winfrey give up her post as Queen of All Media to be ... Barack Obama's British ambassador?

Yeah, we know it sounds ridiculous -– and the Financial Times admits it does, too –- but "well-placed sources" are floating the rumor. They argue since O's been such an ardent B.O. proponent, she could have her pick of plum embassy jobs.

The FT also says the smart money is on Caroline Kennedy, whose granddad also served in the post -- if ingloriously.
