Did Oprah "Betray" Women for Obama?


AMERICA’S favourite television presenter is paying a painful price for her intervention in the US presidential campaign last month. Oprah Winfrey has been dubbed a “traitor” by some of her female fans for supporting Barack Obama instead of Hillary Clinton.

Winfrey’s website, Oprah.com, has been flooded with a barrage of abuse since the queen of daytime chat shows joined Obama on a tour of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina in mid-December.

Her intervention was widely credited with broadening Obama’s national appeal - especially among women - and with helping him to an upset victory over Clinton in the first vote of the election year in Iowa.

Obama's not gonna win it. He's shot his wad. The best he could hope for would be vice-president. This wouldn't be so bad, as he is young and could be a more viable candidate after 8 years in the executive branch.

I'm sorry !Fred! didn't do better in SC. If McCain would promise not to support amnesty in his first term, I could support him. He does want to cut spending and has a good record on the War on Terror. !Fred! could be the VP on the ticket. Supposing that McCain is to old to run in 2012, !Fred! would be in a great spot to run.
