Senator Winfrey?

Embattled Governor Rod Blagojevich, who is currently enduring an impeachment trial in Illinois — for allegedly trying to sell the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama — says he considered Oprah Winfrey for the seat.

“She seemed to be someone who would help Barack Obama in a significant way become president,” he said on ABC’s Good Morning America. “She was obviously someone with a much broader bully pulpit than other senators.”

He said he didn’t ask her because he was afraid it would seem like a gimmick…and he didn’t think she would accept.
