Oprah to Campaign for Obama
Expect the Hillary-Obama rhetoric to get even more poisonous in the final stretch leading to Iowa. From ChicagoSunTimes:
"Oprah Winfrey is poised to campaign for White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in Iowa and New Hampshire, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.
Obama made the disclosure while working a crowd at Central High School here, after delivering an education policy speech. A man, Ralph Hoagland, asked Obama—who was mingling and shaking hands-- if Oprah was going to stump for Obama in New Hampshire.
"'First she’s coming to Iowa,' Obama told Hoagland, who in 1963 was a co-founder of what is now the giant CVS pharmacy chain. 'But we’ll talk about it. We’ll get her up here.'
"A woman piped up. 'We need her here.'
"'Is she thinking of not coming up to New Hampshire?' Hoagland asked?
"Obama replied, 'No, no no. We’re just doing it one state at a time.'"
