In an interview with Extra the Mighty O, as Jamey likes to call her, let it be known that she'd tried to get an interview with Sarah Palin. Here is the quote.


"I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over," Oprah reveals to "Extra." "I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta Van Susteren. She talked to Matt Lauer. She talked to Larry King, but she didn't talk to me. But maybe she'll talk to me now that she has a book deal."

Of course many of the mainstream celebrity blogs ran it as "Sarah Palin Snubs Oprah."

Here is my question. Is it really a "snub" when a person chooses not to go on the show of a person who actively worked to defeat them? If Obama had lost and Sean Hannity extended Joe Biden an invitation to visit Hannity & Colmes and Biden went elsewhere would that be considered a "snub?" Or did Obama "snub" the ladies at The View by not visiting that show once he became the presidential nominee even though he dropped by Ellen?

When is a "snub" actually a snub?
