Oprah lending hand to Obama's campaign

From cnn.com:

Political observers say Oprah Winfrey's decision to campaign with Sen. Barack Obama could help him made inroads into what many consider Sen. Hillary Clinton's natural constituency: women.

Oprah Winfrey appears with Sen. Barack and Michelle Obama during a fundraiser in September in Los Angeles.

In a move that may lead voters, particularly women, to take a second look at Obama, the talk show host will join the Democratic presidential candidate on the campaign trail December 8 and 9, Obama's campaign announced.

Winfrey will join Obama during campaign stops in the early-voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, the campaign said.

The appearances come just weeks before the crucial Iowa caucus on January 3.

"Oprah takes the idea of a celebrity endorsement to a whole new level. She's not just a superstar. She's a nova," Democratic strategist Jenny Backus told CNN.

"She's not just a Hollywood celebrity. In fact, she's really not Hollywood. She's like the voice of America. I mean, she is someone that more American women and men tune into every day." (Read More...)
