Why should OPRAH feel terrible? Just because she's BLACK? Ain't that like a rich libby. I guess black folks can't be rich and enjoy their money, not worrying about the poor, benighted masses.

"She said, 'Don't you just feel guilty? Don't you just feel terrible?'"

Steadman had a sex change?

I guess none of her money is spent on a PR person/publicist to advise her what to say in magazines.

old Oprah has done pretty good for a little gal from the east side of Attala Co. Mississippi .

Oprah does a heck of a lot for people. She's not what I'd call stingy. I applaud her for her generosity, and I applaud her for not letting others make her feel guilty for having attained such success.

I'm still trying to figure out the concept of the wealthy urban liberal.

The idea, as I see it, is write checks and vote for politicians who will raise taxes on earners, aka, 'the rich' so that their money can be sent to Washington bureaucrats who take their cut, so they can then send it back to the cities to pay for 'social programs' cut checks to support 'the poor'.

Why not just cut out the middle men and do some actual good?

Really, why are there wealthy liberals in the first place?

Hillary, with her "rich getting richer" won't play well with Oprah.

And her fans.

No problem with her wealth. I just don't like the way she always pretends to make fun of herself when she is actually making herself a victim.

I do not know how me being destitute is going to help them.

I think this is pretty self serving and evasive. The point is not that Oprah should be "destitute"(which, given her wealth, is a joke statement), but rather what kinds of changes she could cause with her vast resources. Failing to choose in life is itself a choice, and failing to make an effort to assist others, especially when one's own needs are ridiculously satisfied, is itself a form of action.

So she might want to consider what actions she will be proud of in this life, sleeping on her expensive sheets, or building a school for someone.

Thats great. But it doesnt buy her much with me.

I still cant stand this woman. She built her little empire on trash TV for years. She shills her new age garbage latest shrink of the week "book club" for the unthinking daytime TV boneheads who put every title she deems Oprah approved on the best sellers list.

You have presidential candidates blubbering on her show for approval and playing kissy face, praying that her viewers will vote for them.

ugh

ugh again

Proof positive America is a truly great place. Where else in the world can a black, female liberal get filthy rich and not feel guilty about it? I don't agree with you very often, Ms. Winfrey, but I think you have personified the American dream better than most. God bless you and I am proud you are an American.

25 years ago Oprah was a frumpy nobody hacking it at some low-level Chicago TV station. She seized the bull by its horns and became a sensation. I hate her politics but she's got ambition and brains, plus she's vastly underrated as an actress. Should've gotten the Academy for The Color Purple.

I'm actually extremely jealous of Oprah.. I'll admit it. But I do love her shows lately. They've been very good.

"Wealth is a good thing"?

Deep, Opie.

Wish I had that kind of reasoning power.
