    ...Winfrey, 52, who is reportedly worth more than $1 billion, said she doesn't feel guilty about her wealth. "I was coming back from Africa on one of my trips," she said.

    I’m sorry, but I am afraid. With all the predication threads, how about one with when will the election be called. With all the Dimocrats dirty tricks (which have already begun) and their lawyers by the tens of thousands in the battleground states; I predict this election will not be over until January 12, 2005.I also predict it will be won in the courtroom again, but not in the Supreme Court but in a half dozen state courts. The victory will go to which every side has the better lawyers. I hope I am wrong.
