The petition's Web site,, says it's backed by a group called the Political Fish, and registered to Joshua Bolin of Augusta (GA). The petition followed reports that Ms. Winfrey, after deciding to personally support Sen. Barack Obama decided not to involve her TV show in the presidential campaign. In a statement last week, Ms. Winfrey said she would love to interview Ms. Palin, the governor of Alaska, and predicted it would be a "fantastic interview," but said it could only take place after the election.
