Schwarzenegger, Shriver Do Oprah

Reuters reports that a group of feminists recently staged a demonstration outside Schwarzenegger's campaign office to protest and raise awareness about what they deem to be his "misogynist views" and "crude behavior toward women."
Enter Oprah Winfrey for damage control. Winfrey, a friend of the actor turned candidate and his wife, Maria Shriver, has invited the couple to appear on Monday's season premiere of "Oprah."
Shriver has publicly praised her husband as "one of the most gracious, supportive and open-minded men I've ever met." But this will be the couple's first interview together on television since Schwarzenegger first announced his candidacy on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
But, perhaps undoing all the new sensitive points he'll earn on Oprah, he's also slated to appear on shock jock Howard Stern's radio show.
