Another Big Event to Seek Out on Jan. 20
Forget about Michelle's gown or how to get a swearing-in ticket. The looming question about Inauguration 2009: What's Oprah planning?
The multimedia queen hinted early on that she'll come to Washington for the big event: In a radio interview on the morning of Election Day, she declared that she had already bought her dress. But you don't expect Ms. Winfrey to be just another flag-waver on the parade route, do you?
Sources involved in the process tell us that Winfrey hopes to broadcast three shows from D.C. during inaugural week and that she has reached out to the Kennedy Center for discussions about possibly hosting one there. Neither the KenCen nor Harpo Productions would comment.
Also, event planners who say they're working for her have been making calls around town seeking a ballroom or other site to host a big party. That's the one you want to crash.
