Oprah speaks for young black men - not American women.
Oprah has refused to have Governor Sarah Palin on her show. If there was ever a woman who represents what Oprah supposedly has epitomized, it's Sarah Palin. Oprah's undying support for Obama is based on two factors - race, and her hatred for President Bush. There is no other reason, unless she thinks the country can be run using platitudes and poll watching. She says the reason Governor Palin will not be on her show is because she will be featuring no candidates from now until the election. Of course, Leno and Letterman have no problem with having candidates as guests. My opinion is she made that announcement to the detriment of her candidate. If it were not for Palin, you better believe she would have had Zero on her show several times. So, in that respect BO is being denied a real source of exposure. That's a good thing. If I were an American woman, I would boycott the show and let Oprah know why. (I already boycott the show, but I don't think she would care if I let her know why.)
