A couple of places where this can be found ... (The story is in Parade Magazine)

Huffington Post

American Hot News

Oprah Winfrey was once offered the chance to become a U.S. ambassador by former Secretary of State Colin Powell. The politician and statesman were dining with the talk show queen at a party in Washington, D.C. five years ago when he turned to Winfrey and asked her to consider a high office within the George W. Bush administration.

She tells Parade magazine, "He said that when we were in the ambassadors room and I said, 'Gee... an ambassador! I think that would be really great.' He goes, 'Name your country, baby, name your country'." Winfrey reveals the offer has never been made since.

Oh for crying out loud!

- Was Colin Powell authorized to make such an offer? 'name your country - baby' he said to Oprah. According to her, he wasn't kidding around.

- She was smart not to take him up on it. It would have been a huge salary cut for her. And in her position now as head clucker in chief to braindead women, she really has more power and more say with what goes on in the country anyways.

- She's got business savy and knows how to play the game and how to play people. I suppose that makes her qualified to be an ambassador, right? Well .. yes and no. What she's lacking is the ability to work well with others. Reports out of Oprah-land say she's a tyrant and you can't be tyranical and a mouthy-bossy bully when you are an ambassador.

- When I read the headlines I figured it was Obama who was offering her the job as a payoff for her campaigning for him. Color me surprised ... instead it was Colin Powell hotdogging it during an event. Maybe he was authorized ... maybe not. Maybe he was trying to impress the rich hollywood chickiepoo by throwing around ambassadorships. Dunno. But he treated the post of Ambassadorship like a candybar that he got free by trick or treating on Halloween.

Do you realize between Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump, Bill Gates and Angelia Jolie giving 1% of their overall wealth they can stop world hunger (and probably feed the abandon pets at the ASPCA too)????

What is wrong with this planet?

Ah nevermind,

I already know.
