That doesn’t seem to bother Oprah, who has stumped for Obama and publicly vouched for the candidate.
“I’m euphoric, I’ve been doing the happy dance all day,” Oprah said in a statement released to Access Hollywood when Obama clinched the Democratic nomination in June. “If he wants me to, I’m ready to go door to door.”
With the general election next Tuesday, Obama himself will reach into people’s homes on Wednesday night, as his 30-minute infomercial airs on NBC, CBS, Fox and Univision at 8 PM.
