Obama set to appear on one of Oprah's final shows

Oprah Well, she might not publically endorse him in the 2012 election, but that doesn't mean Oprah doesn't want President Obama to appear on her show. In fact, Lady O plans to sit down with the president and the first lady for a taping of her talk show April 27, with an air date set for May 2. The interview will make up one of the final episodes of the 25-year-old show.

Back in 2007, Oprah famously endorsed then-Sena. Obama's run for president on the Larry King show. It was the first time she supported a presidential candidate, and she continued to campaign for Obama throughout his run, even showing up at his election night victory rally in Chicago's Grant Park. Oprah hasn't confirmed or denied rumors that she will support him less publically this time. Either way, it's probably nothing that a pair of tickets to Oprah's Favorite Things can't fix.
