Oprah_and_obama

I just love listening to our people talk sometimes, especially our elders.

The topic of conversation today between a group of grandmothers…how Senator Barack Obama won Iowa.

And I quote:

"That Oprah really helped Obama.  You know them white people in Iowa love them some Oprah. They listen to everything she says."

Classic.  I’m not disagreeing with them, I just thought it was a simple answer to a question that didn’t need polls or analysts, just the life experience from a group of grandmothers who simply called it like they saw it.  And that my friends is that.
