Oprah' Supports Obama

OK, So why am I not so impressed with the new Oprah/Obama campaign?

Rally: On Saturday, Barack Obama greeted Oprah Winfrey in Des Moines, Iowa.

I guess that is the reason. Because it seems like the "Oprah/Obama Campaign" instead of Obama campaign.

It's interesting what Hillary had to say about Obama, in Des Moines on Friday:

"Change is just a word if you don't have the experience to back it up." Ouch!

but i got to give it to Oprah who defended Obama Saturday: "We recognize that the amount of time you spend in Washington means nothing unless your accountable for the judgments you made at the time you had them." More HERE

Hello!

As the Times Reports — the weekend was gentle and apolitical. Winfrey tried to motivate the HyVee crowd, but she didn't talk policy so much as treat Obama like a favorite book; she raved about how much he moved her, and told her friends to check him out. Obama stood by in a black suit and white shirt with no tie, soaking it all in before giving a version of his standard 30-minute stump speech. More HERE

I guess I'm in agreement with Political Analyst Larry Sabato who also doubts that Winfrey's success in selling Steinbeck will translate into getting votes for Obama.

"Politics is a one-day sale," says Professor Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics in Charlottesville. "Getting 10,000 people to buy a book is a big deal. Getting 10,000 people to vote doesn't mean anything in a national election. Ultimately, candidates have to make their own sale." More HERE

But, hey you have to give it to him, 'his moment may be now'

Oprah Winfrey walks on stage before speaking at a rally for Democratic presidential hopeful, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., Saturday, Dec. 8, 2007, in Des Moines, Iowa.


PS: I don't remember Oprah coming out against the war in Iraq. I think she supported the war, just like you know who, Hillary Clinton - more HERE

Am I wrong?
