Oprah just turned the color purple!

Gov. Rod Blagojevich tells ABC that he considered appointing Oprah Winfrey to the empty U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama.

He tells "Good Morning America" that the idea of nominating the talk show host came to him as he explored potential candidates for the job that federal prosecutors allege he tried to sell to the highest bidder.

Blagojevich says "she was obviously someone with a much broader bully pulpit than other senators."

The governor says he worried that the appointment of Winfrey might come across as a gimmick and the talk show host was unlikely to accept.

Rod you do realize by invoking the name of Oprah your best selling prison tell all book won't make her book club?
