    Now that I think about it what happened to Oprah and her support of Obama? Anyone know?

    You would have thought she would have been a "key speaker" at the convention :confused:

    :eusa_hand: Not that I am an Oprah fan ... but her voice has sure quieted down, no? Anyone heard if they have "differences" now?

    I think it would've pissed A LOT of people off if Oprah had made any kind of speech at the DNC. It would've played right into the Repugs hands too that Obama is more of a celebrity than an actual leader.

    I'm quite certain that Oprah is silently still supporting Obama but in many ways she does more harm than good to be that out there.

    Obama is pretty smart. I think he's actually trying to down play is "black" supporters. He's trying to appeal to everyone and if he comes off as being too "black," a lot of white supporters might pull their support. He has been accused of "not being black" enough.

    AKA: he's trying to throw black people under the bus so the whites will think his 20 years at TUCC were spent sleeping.

    well let's be honest, four years ago Obama was a virtual unknown. I think if Hillary had run in 04 she might've had a shot....

    Obama gained national attention with his keynote address at the 04 DNC. I just watched that speech for the first time tonight (I love digital cable LOL)and was struck by how on point he was even back then. His stance on everything in that speech is almost exactly the same as today. I was even more impressed after that because it reassured me that he's not simply spouting the latest fad and these ideals are his.

    Obama's three biggest priorities are...

    Getting out of Iraq, universal healthcare, and American energy independence.
