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.

Obama is the only sane way to vote! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the change we need in this country and so what if celebrities voice their support to get that done!

This the problem!! I don’t care who Oprah votes for. Does anyone care who I vote for? No, because I don’t have 20 billion dollars. She needs to help the people in this country not around the world. They are people that die everyday in this country due starvation. Where is Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and so on for those people. They are to busy giving a million per plate to politicians . I don’t who you vote for all politicians are the same. Give me a break!

OBAMA!!! Oprah has every right to say what she wants as we do here. Why the hate?? OBAMA/BIDEN!!!

This country is in serious trouble if Obama does not win. In my opinion, anyone who’s voting for McCain is fearful of losing their socioeconomic status, or a racist. What year is it again? Oh yea, 2008. VOTE OBAMA!

I think Oprah like all people have the right to support, endorse and vote for whom ever they please. There is nothing wrong with having a vision and writing it down making it plain to see. To criticize her for that is the main reason we need change in this country. I’m so tired of certain people in this country who are quick to try to be someone’s moral compass when this great ole USA was built on greed, slavery etc… RESPECT is what we are lacking and is why so many non-American think we are arrogant!!

Obama/Biden ’08
