OprahPalooza Gives Obama a Boost

It started in Iowa yesterday to the tune of 8,500 people, then to a football stadium in South Carolina this morning, and later to New Hampshire.  The incomparable Oprah Winfrey is stumping for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and she is making quite an impression.

 

An estimated 29,000 folks attended the rally at the University of South Carolina's football stadium.  Oprah Winfrey called Senator Obama someone that the country needs and that he is "the one" to lead.  She also stated that she was sick of politics as usual, that she had voted for as many Democrats as Republicans in her lifetime, and that she had never endorsed a candidate before.

 

For his part, Barack Obama received the opportunity to speak in front of tens of thousand of potential voters.  He criticized the Bush administration and took a couple jabs at Hillary Clinton.  The speech was his standard one, but was one which most people in the audience have never heard.

 

Endorsements of presidential candidates don't typically mean anything, but Oprah Winfrey is a woman who can move the needle.  People trust her.  When Oprah tells her audience what she believes, they tend to follow her.

 

These rallies could very well propel Barack Obama to the winner's circle in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.  If he wins those three, he will likely take home the Democratic nomination.
