Oprah Winfrey has been one of Barack Obama’s most outspoken supporters over the course of his campaign, and she’s already planning the next step — what to wear to his inauguration ball! Winfrey called into N.Y.C.’s Power 105.1 Radio Station this morning to talk with host Ed Lover, and revealed her sartorial plan for the big night. Turns out that she not only already has the dress, but she’s been planning it since February with “vision boards”! Winfrey explained, “So help me God, I am looking at it right now…. Actually I started in February. I was speaking with Michelle [Obama] and Caroline Kennedy and Maria Shriver — we were all doing a big rally out in California. At the end of the rally Michelle Obama said something powerful, ‘and I want you to leave here and envision Barack Obama taking the oath of office’…. I created a vision board. I had never had a vision board before. I came home, I got me a board and put Barack Obama’s picture on it and I put a picture of my dress I want to wear to the inauguration.” And with votes still being cast around the country, the dress has already made its debut out of the closet! “Last week I said to the stylist, ‘Take it out of the closet. Let’s take it out. Let’s hang it up, and let it air out.'” Check out more political fashion choices by clicking here.

After reading these posts, I can say I’m embarrassed for my country. To hear people bashing an American Hero(John McCain) and bashing a top graduate of one of our finest schools (Barack Obama). It shows how far we have to go before we can be a better country. We need to judge people on their accomplishments not the color of their skin, age or other unimportant criteria.

who gives a rats hole if he’s white black or muslim…the fact of the matter is we need someone who can run the country..not run it into the ground. electing mccain would be like bush part 3, and then when you add that scary sarah palin to the mix…nooooo thanks!

haven’t the republicans done enough damage? i certainly think so. time for a change people.

and if obama wins i’m going dress-less to the bash! woooo!

McCain and Palin are idiots and God help us all if they win! Do you really want 4-8 more years of what this country has been going through lately? Wise up, people, before it is too late! Power to Obama!!


Keep drinking the Kool-Aid Oprah! I think the following Thomas Jefferson quote describes why Obama is bad for this country “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.”

The problem with this election is there wasn’t one news outlet that printed the TRUTH – consistantly. The press has a patriotic duty to inform us of the truth – not become part of the news. In order for democracy to work we need an unbias press.

Do you think McCain will really lower taxes if he keeps us indefinitely in Iraq- think again.

What a freak. She can’t accept that something might not be all about her. Just wait til Obama starts spreading her wealth around. See how much she loves him then.

Obama – do something good for the country – PLEASE.
Oprah – go away.

I too own a small business and recognize that the 8 years of a Republican administration have not been good. My taxes have not gone down, but my retirement account has. Oprah might be silly, but Barak isn’t.
