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.

    This should be funny. I miss Sarah Palin, the 'gosh darnets' and 'I can see.......Russia, from Alaska',....and 'New-Clear'. And I have to give conservatives credit; while they love bashing anyone demorat or liberal, I have yet to hear anyone talk about what would've been had the McCain/Palin ticket won office.

    What a scary thought. That's not funny.

    Oh good, another chance for her to embarass herself. She ought to know that before Oprah was a "celeb", she was a serious reporter in Baltimore, and an anchor on the WJZ television news. Palin ought to study hard for this one. It's gonna be like Katie Couric all over again.

    It is really sad to see that Oprah is going to help this nut case sell some books. What was Oprah thinking?

    Palin is trying to make money... but it should be interesting, I bet she will be scripted and they made an agreement for Palin to just talk and not answer questions. I thought she was too busy with those 1000 request that comes in to Meg daily. LoL

    With about one million FB supporters, a few more are coming as a result of this interview; plus, a number of messages will be passed on to O, her audience and the WH. Get ready, the show has just started.

    Oprah is lucky to get this interview. Palin didn't go on Oprah before because Oprah showed where her true values lie when she got involved in her first political campaign ever! Oprah needs to stop whining when she doesn't always get what she wants!

    "Rogue": (from the on-line version of Merriman-Webster)

    "vagrant, tramp; a dishonest or worthless person; scoundrel; an individual exhibiting a chance and usually inferior biological variation"

    It seems to fit, but maybe she meant "Going Rouge"????

    Knowing how "in love" Oprah is with Obama, I can only imagine what questions she will ask Sarah Palin. Hope it's something along the line of the questioning that Obama got, like, "gee, when did you know that you loved Michelle?" yeah, the really "tough" questions that the liberal media slammed his way. HaHa. And for all of you who "hate" Sarah Palin, moan and groan and cry as you well, she is NOT going away. Like it or lump it. Just know that as much as you despise Sarah Palin, we on the right, feel that same way about Obama.
