Moment #9: Sarah Palin

During the 2008 presidential campaign, rumors swirled that Oprah had snubbed Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin by not asking her to appear on The Oprah Show. On November 16, 2009—about a year after the former governor of Alaska lost her vice-presidential bid—she and Oprah met for the first time on Oprah's stage in a world-exclusive interview to talk about the campaign, her family and her future. "There's an edge-of-your-seat quality to this interview," TV Guide Magazine editor-in-chief Debra Birnbaum says. "A face-off between two very powerful, important, influential women."
