No, I haven’t decided for whom I’m voting yet. Yes, I know I have only a couple of months left to decide. I’ll get there, okay? In the meantime, let’s talk about this weekend’s big political move. Oprah!
I love Oprah. I mean, love her. She’s great. My mom and I used to watch her show when I came home in middle school. She’s smart, savvy, seemingly honest, and a powerful, self-made woman. In my opinion, great qualities to look up to as a young woman. Even though I haven’t watched her show in years, I am interested in why Oprah endorsed Barack Obama. Okay, I know she said that she believes “in his moral authority,” but that’s really vague. Plus, being president isn’t a terribly moral job these days.
If Oprah could lay down the law and point out specifically why Obama is better than the other candidates, besides spouting out how hopeful a candidate he is, than I’m willing to listen. Hell, I’m interested in listening. I don’t believe people should be swayed to Obama just because Oprah endorsed him, but I do believe that we should listen to why a smart woman would choose him. I think I may be disappointed, though, as I predict that Oprah won’t spell out her reasons for why we should vote for Obama. We all know he’s a great orator, a hopeful idealist, and a smart man. Why are his policies better than everyone else’s? Hm, Oprah?
