I would like to see him behind preferably Gore but realistically behind Edwards or Hillary but I don't see that happening either largely due to Rove's disinformation campaign against her. After recent eventsand revelations I now think that Obama stands a chance despite Rove because of Oprah's active campaigning for him!
Think about the ramifications of a black nominee. Myself I do not care what color or Religion anyone is as long as they are honest and in running for President, will do the right thing for our America and average Americans. However, I can see an Obama run for President as cementing Republicans against Obama and what would be tremendous support from Oprah's power and money and many Oprah fans and Blacks that rightly would see an Obama run as their chance to get into the White House.
At times, Winfrey echoed Obama's stump speech. "How many hours you have spent in the halls of Washington is not the issue," she said, according to the source. "I want a man that has good sense." Winfrey said she never expected to be involved in a presidential campaign. "When you have been called, no one can stand in the way of destiny," she reportedly said. Obama Oprah gathering
Imagine this scenario: Oprah chooses to create the "O for Obama" 527 group. She then seeds it with $5 million, and plans a series of radio and TV ads touting Obama in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Arizona. Oprah may get some heat for trying to buy the election, but many rich benefactors have used their money for partisan purposes. The talk show diva has been on record that Obama is the first, and likely last, candidate she publicly backs. If that's the case, why not simply go all out?
What do you think about Obama's chances now? Do you think Oprah will push him over the top? Do you think he will get in as a VP ? Can you now see a black President or vice President in the White House? What do you think the ramifications will be?
