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.

The fact that any of the MCCain supporters can vote for him…even though Palin who has no clue of what is going on in the USA or anywhere else outside of ALASKA…really baffles me. And you accuse blacks of voting for Obama because of race? Uhm, I think it may be the other way around! LOL

VOTE MCCAIN!!!

I don’t know what the person that said they hoped McCain won because of what this country stands for. I thought America was all about someone coming from a poor background had just as much chance and the rich guy with so many houses he is not sure how many there are to become president. Obama, thanks to the love, support and sacrifice of his grandparents was able to get to this goal. I think that because we are not used to someone so smart and articulate we think if you like Obama it is somehow idolizing. The rest of the world is waiting to see if this country is what we have said it is or if we are a bunch or bigots.

God has the last say so on this one… We need someone that is going to help the people.. Not make the rich richer and the poor poorer…Someone who can bring our troops home and stop all this none sense..More power to Obama/Biden

VOTE OBAMA 08!! DID ANYONE EVEN WATCH THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES? ALL MCCAIN DID WAS QUOTE THE PAST WHILE OBAMA HAD AN ANSWER TO OUR FUTURE. HE IS CLEARLY THE RIGHT CHOICE. WHO CARES WHAT COLOR HE IS??? I AM WHITE, MY HUSBAND IS BLACK AND OUR DAUGHTER IS BOTH…JUST LIKE OBAMA. QUIT THE RACISM!!! ITS 2008..GET WITH IT! LET ME TELL YOU A QUICK STORY…LAST WEEKEND MY HUSBAND AND I WENT OUT TO EAT AT A PLACE CALLED COUNTRY TIME AND IT WAS FILLED WITH OLDER WHITE TRUCK DRIVERS. WHEN WE WALKED IN THE RESTAURANT WE WAITED FOR 15 MINUTES BEFORE A LADY TOLD US TO SIT WHEREVER WE WANTED. SO WE SAT DOWN AND WAITED FOR OUR WAITRESS. A GROUP OF 3 WHITE BOYS CAME IN AFTER US AND THE LADY ESCORTED THEM TO A TABLE, BROUGHT THEM MENUS, AND ASKED WHAT THEY WANTED TO DRINK, WHILE ME AND MY HUSBAND WERE STILL WAITING FOR OUR WAITRESS. THE OLDER TRUCK DRIVERS STARED AT US AND WHISPERED BEHIND OUR BACK. UN-F**KING-BELIEVEABLE!!! I AM SOOOO SICK OF RACISM, WE NEED CHANGE AND WE NEED IT NOW!!!!!!!! LET MY DAUGHTER BE RAISED IN A WORLD WHERE IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOUR WHITE, BLACK, BLUE OR PURPLE!! OBAMA IS ABOUT CHANGE AND WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!! BA-ROCK THE VOTE!!!

I think this is a little premature, but I know California will pick Obama. All I can really hope for is that Proposition 8 and Proposition 4 do NOT pass.

I am praying that McCain and Palin wins.

Oprah totally makes me want to puke! After she refused to have McCain/Palin on her show, it showed what kind of person she really is!

edwin on
