Barack Obama may have The Bomb.
And its not aboard the Enola Gay. Its now aboard the Obama Express campaign for the Democratic Presidential nomination. Suddenly Hillarys not looking invincible.
The secret weapon is, of course, Oprah, the nationally adored talk-show host. She attracted a crowd estimated at almost 30,000 Sunday in Columbia, S.C., after campaigning with him Saturday in Iowa.
There are those who say its not his time, that he should wait his turn, she told the crowd in Columbia. Think about where youd be in your life if youd waited when people told you to.
She added, too, a line that could build some fire under his campaign and attract disgruntled Independents, and perhaps even some Republican women: Im sick of politics as usual.
Much of the nation is. But its quite a feat to get from that declaration to mobilizing the turned-off segment and delivering them to a specific candidate. But Im not one to underestimate Oprah. Clinton and Obama are neck-and-neck in Iowa, and shes up in the 5-10 percentage point range in New Hampshire and South Carolina. Thats within the Oprah impact zone.
The nominations still Hillarys to lose. She can beat Obama. But she cant beat Oprah.
As she turns to her gay minions and shouts "FLY, my pretties, FLY!!!!!"
It would be worth it to see Hillary have to go after the big O.
Popcorn...where’s my popcorn??!!
Oprah the King Maker...
Barf alert to the max.
Obama is simply a more likeable fellow. Shrillery couldn’t compete on that basis.
Now Oprah is going to take credit, and be given credit for Obama’s success. That’s a shame.
Here, hold these ball bearings in your hand - they'll help you think clearly...
Hillary certainly wasn't expecting Oprah to play into this.
Oprah's skewing things up real nice. Dig it.
that is an amazing sight to think of.
Pretty please Hillary! I wanna see flying monkeys too!
The real question is who will the democrats nominate, Edwards, Biden or Kucinich. They are the only viable candidates. Anyone who thinks Obama or Clinton will be nominated is buying in to the media spin.
The Clinton wonks ALREADY ARE going after Oprah, AND HARD.
So far, from MyDD they are attcking her for being Anti-Union, and are blaming her for Bush’s election in 2000
This comes from a piece posted YESTERDAY by KOS’s Jerome on MyDD, that SPECIFICLY says that OPRAH is the reason Bush is president...
And here, all along, I thought it was a “Stolen Election”...
HOW CAN THIS BE????
“Hillary Can’t Beat Oprah”
Well, first of all, Oprah ain’t running.
But then, flash forward to 2012.
Hillary failed to get the nomination in 2008 thanks to Oprah’s endorsement of Obama and after a serious public breakdown she has been “resting” in a “spa” for the past 4 years. Obama was defeated in 2008 after he let is slip that he was, in fact, a Muslim. (Who says religion doesn’t matter?).
Now the Democrats find themselves faced with a choice between Dennis Kucinich and ... Oprah Winfrey. After deciding that she enjoyed the campaign with Obama, she runs on her on. She wins the nomination even before the convention on the logic that, hey, she’s black AND she’s a woman. She runs without a vice-presidential running mate. She’s Oprah, after all, why would she need a veep?
The Nitty-gritty of all this is that the Dems have no one who is both qualified and moral. I believe the second quality was the predominate thought and at least ONE of the reasons for the Electoral College.
At which point someone from Oprah's team will say: "You know Hillary's friend Huma ...?"
“Oprah’s skewing things up real nice. Dig it.”
Kinda like when H. Ross Perot entered the presidential race back when Bubba first got Elected in ‘92. Maybe the big O will act as a spoiler in our favor.....
Oprah is everthing that Hillary! is not.She didn’t inherit her billion dollar wealth or power from anyone, she did it all on her own.She is a true American success story whether you like her or not.Clearly, Hillary! can in no way measure up to Oprah.It must be driving her crazy.
Maybe she could go on Oprah’s show, and explain how she, Hillary, a avowed femenist, managed to turn a blind eye to twenty years of her husband’s illegal affairs and do nothing. I thought she was supposed to be a woman of ACTION!?
