Oprah for Senator?

Illinois Gov. Rob Blagojevich has said that he considered appointing Oprah Winfrey to the Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama.

And now--the top ten reasons that the governor should have done so:

10. She has some people who could help him with his hair.

9. She could publish his article "How to Govern Wisely and Well for Fun and Profit" in O magazine.

8. Nobody--but nobody--would be better at a filibuster.

7. She would look great on camera during President Obama's State of the Union address when the director wants a shot of someone looking mesmerized.

6. She could fund all those bailouts.

5. She might feature his autobiography on Oprah's Book Club.

4. C-Span could use a ratings boost.

3. You never know--sound government may be one of her favorite things.

2. She's slightly better known than the guy who got the job--you know, old what's his name.

1. Who needs lobbyists when you never know what Oprah is going to leave under your seat?.
