[presidency] obama, meet oprah

Time posts an interesting point of view on the Obama-Winfrey connection:

Winfrey's endorsement — and her announcement that she will appear with Obama at campaign events in Iowa, South Carolina, and New Hampshire on December 8 and 9 — helps bring the following four things to Obama: campaign cash, celebrity, excitement and big crowds.

The four things that Obama has on his own in great abundance — without Winfrey's help — are campaign cash, celebrity, excitement and big crowds.

Perhaps but surely it's not going to hurt either.

It will add a bit of razamataz, however you spell it, I suppose.

It will be interesting to see what the Oprah effect will be. Hopefully it will encourage people to research the issues and vote.
