Oprah to Campaign for Obama

Since I’ve been on the subject of stars on the stump comes the news that Oprah Winfrey will indeed be hitting the campaign trail for Barack Obama.

It’s been rumored for quite some time, but the Chicago Sun-Times’ Lynn Sweet reports that Obama told a supporter in Manchester, N.H., that Winfrey would campaign for him.

Sweet writes: “A man, Ralph Hoagland, asked Obama—who was mingling and shaking hands– if Oprah was going to stump for Obama in New Hampshire.

“First she’s coming to Iowa,” Obama told Hoagland, who in 1963 was a co-founder of what is now the giant CVS pharmacy chain. “But we’ll talk about it. We’ll get her up here.”

A woman piped up. “We need her here.”

“Is she thinking of not coming up to New Hampshire?” Hoagland asked?

Obama replied, “No, no no. We’re just doing it one state at a time.”

An Obama spokesman said that nothing has been confirmed.
