Why is Oprah given such flack about endorsing Senator Obama for president, when when other celebrities do it all the time? Whats different about Oprah?

If she supports Obama it's race, if she supports Clinton, it's gender. She can't win. Maybe it's because she's out there everyday for us to notice. It could be because she's been so outspoken on women's issues and has given so much support to women, that the feeling is that there is a betrayal to women supporting a black man? In any event, she sure backed off after her initial huge show of support. I hope she continues to show support for him regardless, will she let public outcry influence her?
