Winfrey Brushes Off Ambassador Reports
Winfrey made her endorsement of the Democrat last December (07) - the first time she has ever publicly backed a presidential candidate.
And according to Britain's The Times newspaper, Winfrey's name rests among the top contenders for the post in an Obama administration - marking the first time a TV personality would be appointed to the position.
Former U.K. ambassador to the U.S. Peter Jay tells the publication: "You need someone who is close enough to the president to interpret events and get a message back to Washington. It would send a clear message about the new administration."
But a spokeswoman for Winfrey's Harpo Studios says: "Oprah hasn't been approached."
