A lot of folks who were enthusiastic during President Obama’s 2008 campaign have turned lukewarm.
But not Oprah Winfrey. The former queen of daytime talk appears to be ready to reprise her unprecedented chief political endorser role, this time for Obama’s 2012 campaign.
Winfrey always had a habit of staying away from politics, but she supposedly changed her mind when she heard Obama’s famous speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
She may have ended her daytime show and may temporarily be struggling with her new cable channel, but her endorsement power is still intact, particularly when it comes to Democrats and Independent female voters.
