Oprah Winfrey showed Sunday why she might be Barack Obamaâ€™s secret weapon in the Democratic primaries. Her star power helped attract a huge crowd of more than 25,000 to a stadium in South Carolina, where the billionaire media mogul showed her talent for connecting with ordinary folks.
Oprah declared that Obama â€œspeaks to the potential inside of every one of usâ€ and asked people to embrace his â€œnew visionâ€ for America.
It was good TV. But how many people will Oprah convince to actually go out and vote? Surely enough to worry the Clinton campaign.
With Obama gaining momentum in polls, the race neck and neck, and the primaries just around the corner, Oprahâ€™s appearances will put wind in his sails at a key moment.
