    Oprah Winfrey is already planning on being in D.C. for Barack Obama's inauguration, but what else does she have planned for the big event?

    According to the Reliable Source column in the Washington Post, Winfrey wants to broadcast three shows during the week of the inauguration, which will take place on Jan. 20, 2009. Winfrey has reportedly talked to officials from the Kennedy Center about possibly hosting one of the shows from there. There has been no comment on the report from either Kennedy Center officials or from Harpo Productions.  

    Also, according to the column, event planners who said they are working for Winfrey have been making calls around the capital seeking a ballroom or another site to hold a big party.
