Oprah back Barak Obama
Oprah Winfrey has endorsed her first political candidate ever. Oprah was actually the first person to publicly suggest that Barack Obama run for president, now she has officially endorsed the Illinois senator.
The Almight O says she hasn't given Obama any money, but she told Larry King that her word means a lot more than her cash.
This is probably true as the woman has been known to sell book and cause items to practically fall off the shelves simply by plugging them on her show.
Oprah is backing Obama, “because I know him personally.”
“I think that what he stands for, what he has proven that he can stand for, what he has shown was worth me going out on a limb for,” Ms. Winfrey told Mr. King on Tuesday. “And I haven’t done it in the past because I haven’t felt that anybody — I didn’t know anybody well enough to be able to say, ‘I believe in this person.’ ”
Obama fell a little short during the first democratic debate, but an endorsement like this could push him to the top of the list of contenders.
Most polls show Hillary Rodham Clinton leading the pack of democratic hopefuls.
