McCain supporters who watch Oprah, do you like her less since she supports Obama? I am not fond of her. When her show first came on, I thought she was good. She was every woman. She was someone women could relate to black or white and all the other colors of the rainbow. However fame got to her head, and she is not someone I can relate to. One day she will have poor people on talking about Katrina and the next she will have expensive things on that every person MUST have like 3 brownies for $25 while she says--"Very affordable, very affordable." Please don't rant on how she has done sooooooooo much for poor people...she is selective. I do not watch her anymore. I film her for my mother to watch because she likes some of the shows, especially Dr. Oz.

Well I've never been a fan, but I respect her for being a self-made woman. The one thing she's done that bugged me is when asked about having Sarah Palin on her show, she lied and said she wouldn't because she doesn't want her show to be a platform for politicians. This was AFTER she'd had Barrack Obama on her show twice. I would have respected her more if she'd just been honest and said "I'm supporting Obama and don't want to give people mixed signals by having one of his opponents on my show."

And how many other lies do you think she has told and continues to tell? Worse yet, she thinks the public is so stupid that they believe her. Shame on her!

Oprah has made a living off of playing up the fact that she is a black woman that was sexually abused as a child. Now that she is rich and powerful, she uses her "position" to pick and choose who she will "allow" on her show. She has obviously forgotten where she came from and prefers to associate with the celebrity cliques instead of the common people. I think that she came out saying that she wouldn't have Sarah Palin on her show was done to make it look like it was her (Oprah's) decision and not that McCain wasn't going to allow Palin to appear on the show. There is no way that Oprah could ever fill Palin's shoes - she's never been married, never had children - she should be able to have a great career, she has no on to focus on but herself.

I didn't like her before she supported Obama - but I can definitely see a similarity between the two. They pretend to be all down-home and friendly to all the poor and uneducated people, but they're all about spending lots of money and having "clout" because of the money they have to spend.

I use to like her but even before Obama came to town she had been getting more and more like.. stuck up! Sorry can't think of any better way to put it. I really don't understand either how these people who have lived the American Dream and built themselves up from nothing can actually support a candidate that wants to change the whole definition of the American Dream. She's lost her charm over the years for me, and her excuse for not wanting Sarah Palin on her show just doesn't hold water. If she would just tell it like it is that she doesn't want to use her show to help any candidate by Obama, then I could respect her. Don't lie, Sarah Palin's story is what her show would usually have. But she used her show for a political agenda and her ratings have suffered for it. I don't think she's a bad person at all but I really think she needs to remember where she came from and the satisfaction she felt when she first pulled herself up after being pushed down.

Also like to add to Bruce Springsteen and Madonna, it will be a while before this 80's child can stand to listen to your music without thinking of you as an Obama supporter, Bruce I think I may forgive someday... Madonna I seriously doubt I could ever get pass what you said on stage about Sarah Palin.lol

I agree. I respect people more when they tell me the truth. When they lie to me, I ignore them and what they have to say. Madonna has always been a radical. Why people pay money to go to a concert to have her guide their ideas, I don't know. What a waste.

When her show first aired I used to watch it. Then she became too big for her britches. She was too kissy, kissy with the "A list" celebrities and politicians. Her word was gold. Talk about ego, her magazine "O" with her face plastered on the cover. I wonder why Stedman hasn't married her yet.

I would be afraid to be married to her. A person with an ego like that, I would think might be controling.

I'm not a McCain supporter, infact I can't stand the guy, but I'm coming in anyway to offer another point of view that parallels the question you're asking. I don't support McCain, and I don't like McCain, but my best friend DOES, and we are still the best of friends. I don't like or dislike people because of who they suport, We all have the right to support who we please.

I suppose I should have phrased the question differently. I dislike that Oprah has a political adgenda to sell and she expects her followers to buy it.

I seldom watch her show. She was never one of my favorites to begin with. Yes, she does have some good stuff in her show but the whole thing has become so "commercialized". I can't help but think that she is just doing these things for the money. She has changed a lot over the years. Fame, power and money have affected her in more ways than we can imagine.

You are so right. I still have have not figured out why people are obsessed with her.
