Now that Barack Obama has won, people will forgive Oprah ….The ones who held her support of Barack Obama against her that is. It has to do with the psychology or sociology of winning. People love winners, and the people who back them. If not, they tolerate them. And the reason for doing this may have something to do with the surmise that those who back winners know something everyone else doesn’t.
Forget that she has become the most powerful woman to rule the media roost. The capital she has at this point is something other people only dream about. Barring some scandal or unforgivable foible, Oprah’s Obama gambit has just positioned her to transcend her native realm and chart new paths beyond fame and fortune. Think Angelina Jolie with an “Obama Boost”. It sounds like a Jamba Juice smoothie, doesn’t it? © 2008 Cyberaxis – Dendroaspips Polylepis
