With Barack Obama getting the nod from the Democratic party on Tuesday evening as the Democratic nominee in the bid for the office of President of the United States…Oprah is celebrating. She has said that she has been doing the happy dance all day.
Oprah also allegedly said, she is ready to go door-to-door for Barack Obama if he so desired her to; which brought to my mind a vision of Oprah becoming a modern day salesman (woman). Is Oprah starting a new career? 🙂
Is she ready to start a new career as a pitch person for the political movers and shakers? Her influence is quite powerful. After all, Oprah has conquored the television talk show circuit, produces movies, she is a book club afficionado, and she is an advocate for initiating education; by planting a school for young African girls. Oprah is a magazine owner… she is a successful business woman, as well as, an expert at branding herself in any area that she wishes to explore. She is a smart woman…a beautiful woman… a seasoned business person; and, she connects with people in extra-ordinary ways.
She appears to accomplish what she sets out to do. She definately did her best to bring attention to Barack Obama’s campaign. Between television, her magazine, interviews and the campaign trail…Oprah definately has the platform to draw potential voters to the election process. She also has a powerful impact in the areas that she makes a commitment to. Oprah is nothing but passionate about the things that she chooses to spend time doing.
People either love her or they don’t…but, most people do have an strong opinion one way or the other. How will this opinion affect the vote for the President of the United States, come time for the actual election? Time will tell.
