Barack's bragging that Oprah's his girl (and we're not mad at him)

 


If you weren't one of the 70,000 people at the Oprah/Obama rallies this weekend or one of the millions of people who saw the news coverage, the Obama campaign wants to make sure that you know that Barack is  Oprah's "most favoritest" thing.  The campaign sent out an email yesterday evening asking recipients to forward a video with excerpts of  Oprah's and Obama's remarks at the rallies to all of their friends. 


Interesting is that the email about Oprah's endorsement came from "Obama from America," rather than Oprah herself.  A personal email messsage from Oprah urging us gals to vote for Obama would be powerful with a capital P.  Either the Obama campaign is holding the Oprah email card for later use (most likely), or Oprah has determined that an endorsement of that kind is more than her brand can handle (less likely... O can do almost anything). 


View the video that came with the Oprah email above.  Read the email in it's entirety after the jump.


 


 

Here is the email that Obama for America sent out about Oprah's endorsement:

Kari --

"For the very first time in my life, I feel compelled to stand up and to speak out for the man who I believe has a new vision for America."

- Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey joined Barack and Michelle Obama at free public rallies in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina this weekend.

In total, they electrified nearly 70,000 people across three states and brought thousands of new volunteers into our crucial early-state operations. Thanks to everyone who came out and made these events such a success.

Here's a video with excerpts from both Oprah's and Barack's remarks:

Oprah's public support has attracted a lot of attention and created a tremendous opportunity to reach out to people who otherwise might not hear Barack's message of change.

At every stage of this campaign, the mission for every Obama supporter has been to become an organizer in their own right. By reaching out to your friends, family, and neighbors, you have the potential to bring people back into the political process and make them part of something special.

Oprah can certainly reach a lot more people than most of us, but the challenge she met this weekend is the same one you can meet: To break out of your comfort zone and reach out to your network about the important choice our country faces at this moment.

Use this video of Oprah and Barack as an occasion to start that conversation with someone. Watch it and share it with people you know:

Thanks,

Obama for America
