image for Senator Oprah?
Was Doctor Phil The "Friend?"

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who has been charged with trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by President Barack Obama, now says he considered offering it to talk show star Oprah Winfrey.

Blagojevich said on ABC's "Good Morning America" Monday morning that a mutual friend of his had suggested asking Winfrey to fill Obama's seat.

"She seemed to be someone who had helped Barack Obama in a significant way become president," Blagojevich said. "She was obviously someone with a much broader "background" and money than other senators."

"Plus she could have easily outbidded anyone else if, say it WAS true that I tried to sell it, which I didn't."

"But I finally considered that, at over 200 pounds now, she'd never fit."
