CHICAGO - Sarah Palin sat down with Oprah Winfrey, discussing the controversy surrounding the former Alaska governor's possible appearance on the show last year and touching on whether Palin plans to run for president in 2012.
In an episode that aired Monday, Palin also answered questions about her relationship with Levi Johnston, the father of her grandson.
Palin and Winfrey embraced as the one-time Republican vice presidential candidate walked onto the talk show stage. Palin's 413-page book, "Going Rogue," will be released today and she begins a book tour Wednesday in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Winfrey began the interview by asking Palin if she felt snubbed at not getting an invitation to "The Oprah Winfrey Show" last year. Winfrey said she didn't have any candidates on her Chicago-based show during the campaign because of her support of President Barack Obama.
Palin said she didn't feel snubbed and told Winfrey, "No offense to you, but it wasn't the center of my universe."
Winfrey also asked Palin if she was thinking about running for president in 2012.
"It's not on my radar screen right now," Palin said
