Oprah for Vice-President?

I am going to speculate on DC politics - Oprah Winfrey wants to be the next US Vice President. A strong case can be made that Oprah has started her political journey by backing Obama .

Michael Moore has been running a campaign, Draft Oprah for President.

C'mon! Isn't it time we had a winner on our side?

America loves Oprah. She's got good politics, a great heart-and she'll have us all exercising AND reading! This can't be a bad thing.

Oprah Winfrey raises $3 million for Barack Obama

"I haven't been actively engaged before because there hasn't been anything to be actively engaged in. But I am engaged now to make Barack Obama the next President of the United States," Winfrey told a star-studded crowd of 1,500, according to a source at the event.

The outdoor party raked in a whopping $3 million for Obama, the Democratic senator from Illinois who aspires to be the nation's first African-American President.

This is from CNN - excerpts from a Michael Moore interview:

O'BRIEN: Oprah Winfrey for president.


O'BRIEN: Seriously, you really...

MOORE: Yes, seriously.

O'BRIEN: Democratic candidate?

MOORE: God, yes. President Oprah? The woman has good politics. She's got a good heart.

O'BRIEN: Is America ready for a black female president?

MOORE: They don't -- people don't -- Oprah, they love -- America loves Oprah. Don't you love Oprah?

O'BRIEN: You know I love Oprah.

MOORE: Well, of course. Everyone would vote for Oprah. For crying out loud, if California would vote for Schwarzenegger, America, who loves Oprah, would vote for Oprah.

Obama-Oprah could give the Clintons a good run for their money. If the Americans, in fact vote for the two big O's, it will be something special.

Republicans know it too well that they don't stand a chance in this election. Who would they vote for - O or C? Mrs Clinton is the compassionate conservative when compared to Team O2.
