"see through those people who try to convince you that experience with politics as usual is more valuable than wisdom born from years of serving the people outside of Washington."
-Oprah Winfrey in Des Moines 12/8/07
Something extraordinary happened today. Oprah Winfrey went out on the stump for Barack Obama today in Iowa. This is something she has never done before, but because her belief in the senator from Illinois is so strong she agreed to go out on the stump for him.
There have been a lot of questions coming out about whether or not Oprah's appearance out on the campaign trail would generate votes for Obama. I don't know if all of the 18,500 people who showed up today are supporting Obama, but I do know that once he speaks they will have an opportunity to hear what he stands for and why he thinks he is the most qualified person for the job of President of the United States.
So what do you think? Do you think Oprah's prescence on the campaign trail will generate votes for Sen. Obama?
