Oprah Parties With President Elect Obama

An early high-profile cheerleader of Barack Obama this election season, talk show host Oprah Winfrey celebrated in Grant Park in her hometown of Chicago. She was joined by a crowd of campaign supporters who included an emotional Rev. Jesse Jackson.

Dressed in a bright green sweater, Winfrey stood out in the sea of red, white and blue flags that waved excitedly as President Elect Obama gave his acceptance speech on stage.

When she has him on her show for an interview, which she undoubtedly will, you just know she’ll end the Q&A by saying, “Take a look under your seat Mr. Obama…you’re holding the key to Air Force One!” And it really will be the key to Air Force One because she’s just that powerful.
