*As the first lady and good wife of the president, Michelle Obama brought it to Oprah straight and asked for a public endorsement for the 2012 presidential campaign.

So what did the queen of daytime TV say?

Well according to reports, on of them from the National Enquirer, O’s not taking her up on the offer.

“Oprah bluntly told Michelle there’s a problem,” says a source. “And it’s business, not personal.”

After her ratings dropped dramatically in 2008 when she publicly endorsed Obama, Oprah is obviously convinced her support will break her a bit more, especially her new network, OWN, which is already on shaky ground.

On the other hand since the Obamas were on of the final guests on Oprah’s daytime show, maybe there was a change of heart. Maybe. Hopefully.
