Clearing the air about her life 

Palin opened up to Oprah about her family, her future, her decision to step down as Alaska’s governor and what went wrong during the election for the first time on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’.
Oprah said the supposed snubbing was actually just an attempt to keep her show
separate from her public support for a candidate as a private citizen.

“Because of that, I had made a decision not to have any of the candidates on my show during the campaign,” she said.

 “So for the record, I just want to say that Sarah Palin was never asked... to be on the show,” she added.

The world has been fascinated with Palin since Senator John McCain announced she would be his running mate. As a woman running for office, Palin said she faced a lot of questions regarding family that her male counterparts did not. Specifically, many people questioned her ability to be a mother to five children while serving as the vice president. “My answer was always, ‘I will be able to do this job the same way that the men are able to do this job with five kids’,” she said. “It never occurred to me that I couldn’t do the job because of the children. My children are my strength.”

One of the most vital contributors to that support system is her husband. “There’s a lot of equality in our marriage. We don’t bicker and fight over who’s going to do the dishes or pick up a kid. We both just pick up and get the work done, and it’s a great partnership.” As for Palin’s future, there has been plenty of buzz that she’s gearing up for the 2012 presidential campaign. She said, “I don’t know what I’m going to be doing in 2012.” Catch the dynamic Ms Palin in a frank conversation with Oprah in ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ on May 30 at 9 pm on Big CBS Love.
