Although talk show host Oprah Winfrey said before her daytime job keeps her busy enough -- rumors are still swirling she'll become an ambassador in the Barack Obama administration.

The latest rumor plugs Winfrey as Obama's pick to be ambassador to South Africa. The Mail & Guardian cited an unidentified source within the United Nations saying Winfrey would replace Eric Bost.

In October, rumors sparked by a column in the Financial Times speculated Winfrey would be named ambassador to Britain.

Winfrey, who has been very public in her support of Barack Obama and also built a school for girls in the region, recently returned from a trip to Africa.
