WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sarah Palin will sit down with Oprah Winfrey the day before her new memoir hits bookstores, Harpo announced Tuesday.

The former Alaska governor will make the appearance on Oprah on November 16 to talk about her highly anticipated tell-all, "Going Rogue: An American Life."

Palin has never before appeared on the popular daytime talk show. Last December, Winfrey said she had invited her on the show to discuss the election, but suggested at the time that Palin had instead chose other interviewers.

"I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over... I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]. But she didn't talk to me," Oprah told the show Extra last year.

    Who cares if anyone talks with Sarah Palin?? Why should Oprah care?? There are more other interesting people for Oprah and other talk show hosts to talk to than Palin. Enough with Palin!! My advise to Oprah and other media hosts, Get over Sarah Palin and find someone else to focus on!! Focus on someone who is intelligent, thoughtful, well read, well traveled and is very knowledgeable about national and world affairs. Forget Sarah Palin!!

    Sorry Oprah, I'll have to miss that show. Something more relevant will come up I am sure...like a class on how to best trim my toenails for fall/winter footwear.

    Why are you giving her the time of the day? This is the person who used all those crazy scare tactics at the time of election. Why do you think people still talk about socialim? It's all because of her ....

    Please let her disappear!!!!

    Oh goodie, another chance for Barbie to completely embarass herself on national TV.

    You know they are dumb when they don't even realize how dumb they are.

    The key here is November 16th. That's gives her plenty of time to back out. I'm sure we'll be seeing some reason in the future why she has to cancel the interview. This woman is a complete joke.

    Oprah said she would sit with Palin AFTER the election, but yet she not only sat but campaigned with Obama DURING the election, Oprah has never endorsed a candidate until Obama, could it be because he is black? I think so.... Oprah is a racist.

    CASHING IN..... this is going to be Sarah's biggest draw yet on the MONEY......good for her.......

    Oprah is all about communication and being a part of America.

    I would image the "political haters" out there on both sides will draw their ugly conclusions as they did when Oprah stated she wouldn't hold interviews until after the elections.

    Let's just hope the "Republicans that were haters" last year now have a different view than last year in the heat of the elections.

    Now no one really wants to talk to Palin so she chose Oprah for her big come back. There is one show I will gladly miss.

    Well, more of the country can see why Palin isn't fit to lead much of anyone. I think she should really re-evaluate what her ideals are and read up on some history about the US. I hope that Palin stutters with answers like she did during the other interviews she had (Katie Couric anyone?).

    Sarah needs to pull a Michelle and give her a list of questions that she can only ask.

    Please tell Mrs. Palin the correct way to wear the Blue Star Pin ... down like a flag – not crossways!

    Better not ask any really hard questions like Katie did. I suggest: (1) Can you really see Russia from your house? (2) What does moose taste like? (3) Will you get even dumber when you get old and senile?

    Big mistake. Oprah is as liberal as they get. I quit watching her several years ago.
