Palin, Winfrey talk about big interview

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Oprah and Palin are revealing some details of their big interview."](CNN) - Sarah Palin enjoyed her highly-anticipated sit down with talk show host Oprah Winfrey so much that the two went "way over time," the former Alaska governor wrote on her Facebook Page.

But Palin gave few details of what the two discussed for more than hour, saying only that Winfrey was "very hospitable and gracious."

The former Republican vice presidential nominee also praised the show's studio audience, which she said was "full of warm, energized and (no doubt) curious viewers."

Meanwhile, Winfrey was a little more forthcoming with details of the interview, revealing in a Web video late Wednesday that the two "talked about everything."

"We talked about inside the campaign, what it felt like when she was first asked to be vice president. We talked about Bristol, the pregnancy. We talked about Trig, her baby. We talked about Levi Johnston. We talked about her marriage…there's nothing we didn't talk about."

The interview will air on Monday, a day before Palin's memoir "Going Rogue: An American Life" is released.

    Wow someone on the other side can actually talk to Palin without spewing a bunch of insults? Way to remind the left about class Oprah.

    In other words a forum to let her grow an image without getting into questions that tell us if she is competent. Winfrey was a journalist–I hope she pressed Palin intead of giving her a platform to present more nonsense.

    Wow, I can't believe Oprah had this clown on her show. Palin is an absolute embarrassment to all women.did Oprah ask her about her snarky comments pertaining to community organizers?! This lady is a loser, and will get everything that she deserves!

    I'm sure Oprah was "very hospitable and gracious". Oprah is a class act; Sarah IS NOT.

    Sarah is still in middle-school mode – beauty queen, back-stabbing, hateful, very spiteful. She hasn't yet shown any grace or class.

    Everyone in Alaska is ecstatic that she is not longer our governor.

    You betcha! As long as she is the center of attention Sara Palin will be there. I don't think there is a more egotistical woman on the face of the earth. She is a disgrace to all professional women everywhere.

    I have long been a fan of Oprah and have provided her many guests over the years. I can understand her wanting to talk to Sarah Palin, but it's important to understand that Palin is beyond dumb. The right had better come up with some people who have something in the brain department, or 2012 will be a bigger disaster than 2008

    This woman is just 'politics as usual.' She's always bragging about her 'values'. I wonder if her statement about 'death committes' deciding the fates of the elderly is part of her 'values". She frightened so many elderly people and had them so upset and scared over her comment. She should be ashamed of herself for trying to provoke fear in the elderly just for her politics sake. I think she needs to rethink and work on her 'values'.

    I am an elderly person and I didn't appreciate it at all!

    Did Palin tell Winfrey which Russia she sees from her house, or if she is better than her Alaskans's 2nd grade
