Blago -- Oprah for O's Seat...Not a Bad Idea!

1/26/2009 12:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Senator Winfrey? It could've happened, if Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich had had his way.

Blago: Click to watch
Just this AM, Blago told Diane Sawyer he wanted Oprah Winfrey to fill the seat vacated by Barack Obama. "She seemed to be someone who would help in a significant way become president," said Gov. Chutzpah, somehow forgetting Oprah would become Senator only AFTER Obama was elected prez.

Gee you almost got the story accurate. You spelling was good but i heard the interview and the crazy gov only said she was one of many names he was considered. BTW--she's at least as qualified as Al Frankin.

Actually it sounded more like he said ... "She seemed to be someone who HAD helped Barack Obama in a significant way become president." That makes sense to me.

Your poll doesn't have enough options.

How insulting to the guy he DID pick.....but of course, any black person would do. He knew if they were rejected, him and his fellow dems could yell racism. He's not as dumb as he looks.....but his behavior is typical of unethical democratic politics.

The world has truly gone to ----in a handbasket. Let's just have all celebrities and loose canons running the country. If this isn't the saddest state of affairs. You can't even laugh because it's all true.

Blago is soooo full of it. He has told so many lies that now, he is having to go on national tv to appeal to the Illinois voters! Pathetic!!!!

The only way Ophra could make it in politics would be for her to BUY her way in. I think she only seeks MORE power and control over others. Can't stand this woman. So self-centered...

She would be a disaster. But face it, she could NOT be worse than Pelosi or Reid. democrats, both the democrat voters and the ignorant people they vote into office are true disasters. TMZ shows its ignorance by praising the possibility of a Senator winfrey. Following the lead of TMZ and others trashing Sarah Palin, when are we going to see a Winfrey porno????? Soon I hope for you loving democrats. Don't forget your tax subsidized birth control and if it fails, get a government funded abortion. Good idea.

Oh SimpleSue... how appropriately named. Have you forgotten about a certain Republican's "wide stance" or another Republican's interest in the teenage boys on his staff?? Get out of your glass house before you even think of throwing stones.

Blagojevich is just trying to "backfill" his predicament by naming a popular television star. Unfortunately, it won't help him here, and Ms. Winfrey would have been as qualified as Caroline Kennedy would have been for Hillary Clinton's seat...which is to say, not at all. No, it's not a proud moment for Illinois but Rod Blagojevich is hardly the standard-bearer for the Democrat party, and given the mess that President Bush left us, the Republicans should mostly keep silent and work with the new President to un-f*** the country.
