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.

Go McCain/ Palin!!!!!!!!!!! God seriously help us all if that scary man wins! Honestly who wants him in the office? Not me! His wife is proud of her country NOW for the first time! What is wrong with that picture? A lot! Plus that comment the Biden made that Obama would be tested right away if elected. What the heck is that about too?!?!?! That really scares me. I hope that all of you that can vote see the light and elect McCain! He has the countries best intrest at hand!

Nicole, let’s not get nasty to get our point across. I am also an avid OBAMA supporter and if there is one thing he has taught us…it is that you don’t have to be nasty, erratic or violent to get your point across effectively! Obama is the right choice to help America move in a brighter and more positive direction…we can show and prove that without stooping to the low levels of others. OBAMA 2008!

Yall need to stop hating on Oprah. She is a very nice person that does a lot to help people. Has she ever done anything to hurt you? Oprah you go girl. I know that what ever she wears it will be nice.

Regardless of who she supports I am Obama all of the way

Yep because we need someone who is Anti-American to run the country.

God, I hope that dress of Oprah’s hangs in her closet – unworn – we can’t have Obama, NO……..


To: S. Harwel,

Read your history! Our forefathers had slaves, didn’t allow women to have a vote and robbed the Indians. Who give’s a F**k what our forefathers had in mind for America. This country is made up of a diverse cultures, religions, and backgrounds. Our forefathers all looked, acted and thought alike.

Get use to it! Change! Change! Change! Change!
