The speeches by John McCain and Barack Obama were each viewed by approximately 42.4 million people, and the Republican convention was the most watched on TV ever, according to the Associate Press.

Nielsen Media Research reports that McCain actually beat Obama by 500,000.

And there was no contest between Sarah Palin, who had about 37 million viewers, compared with approximately 24 million for Joe Biden, according to the Guardian.

You’ve got to wonder if Obama is rethinking his running mate.

One executive close to Winfrey is warning any Palin ban could ignite a dramatic backlash!
