Oprah Winfrey has been one of Barack Obama’s most outspoken supporters over the course of his campaign, and she’s already planning the next step — what to wear to his inauguration ball! Winfrey called into N.Y.C.’s Power 105.1 Radio Station this morning to talk with host Ed Lover, and revealed her sartorial plan for the big night. Turns out that she not only already has the dress, but she’s been planning it since February with “vision boards”! Winfrey explained, “So help me God, I am looking at it right now…. Actually I started in February. I was speaking with Michelle [Obama] and Caroline Kennedy and Maria Shriver — we were all doing a big rally out in California. At the end of the rally Michelle Obama said something powerful, ‘and I want you to leave here and envision Barack Obama taking the oath of office’…. I created a vision board. I had never had a vision board before. I came home, I got me a board and put Barack Obama’s picture on it and I put a picture of my dress I want to wear to the inauguration.” And with votes still being cast around the country, the dress has already made its debut out of the closet! “Last week I said to the stylist, ‘Take it out of the closet. Let’s take it out. Let’s hang it up, and let it air out.'” Check out more political fashion choices by clicking here.

I pray to God that Obama wins. I do not want to face 4 years of McCain/Palin. The Liar/Idiot ticket that has been so divisive the entire election.

For the sake of our country and what it stands for, I hope Obama does win!! It is definitely time for change.

Yea, sure just keep saying you want the oldest candidate in history to win so his no experience VP can take over the office. Instead of talking smack why not actually read up on the candidates so you can make an informed decision and not base your decision on republic vs. democrat. Yes, there will be a lot of crossing over but it will be republics crossing over, not democrats.

It baffles me when people say that if MCCain/ Palin wins they fear for our country! EXCUSE ME, where have you been for the last 8 years. This is the same perspective you had last time and look what a big mess your votes have made!! If Obama loses this election, please be prepared to bury yourself in the hole that Bush started and McCain makes deeper! (shaking my head in pity)

God help us all if this man wins.

Caroline on

Well, instead of visioning the Marxist in the Oval Office, she should have spent those past few months dieting.

Lord help us all if this man wins.

Don’t hate Oprah because she has vision! Unlike some people, she sees the light! Things have to change! And there’s only one man on this ticket that can bring this change.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!

SOMEONE CALL BARACK A FOOL!! THEN, WHAT ARE YOU FOR VOTING FOR BUSH FOR EIGHT YEARS AND THAT FOOL NEEDS TO BE PUT IN JAIL FOR WHAT HE HAD DONE TO THE ECONOMY, BAILING OUT THOSE CROOKS ON WALL STREET AND TAKING US INTO A WAR BASED ON A LIE. PLEASE WHY DO YOU THINK SOME OF BUSH SUPPORTERS HAVE CHANGED TO BARACK???? BECAUSE THEY RATHER VOTE FOR SOMEONE WITH INTELLIGENCE, CALM AND INEXPERINCE, THEN SOMEONE ERRATIC, CRAZY AND HAVE THE JUDGEMENT OF FRUIT CAKE!!! HE CHOSE PALIN – THIS COUNTRY DOES NOT NEED THE DIVISENESS, WE NEED UNITY!!!

CATHY on

Now doesn’t that just sound like Oprah. She had a “vision” of her dress. And they wanted everyone to envision Obama to win. If he does win, Oprah will probably be giving credit to her “soul series” and all that mumbo jumbo about “the law of attraction” and how this is how he got elected.
