Speaking of the Obamas..
According to the NY Daily News, Oprah Winfrey has decided not to publicly endorse President Obama for his re-election campaign for 2012. Because her OWN Network ratings have been falling, she plans on focusing all her time on helping build and lure viewers to the station. A source added:
"Unlike in 2008, when a drop in ratings didn't matter as much for the queen of TV, Oprah is now fighting every day to get people to tune into OWN," the source added, noting that while Winfrey will likely support Obama again, she will do so more privately.
"Helping a friend keep the most important job in the world is great, but making sure her OWN network thrives is now her priority," the source said.
Oprah was a major influence on President Obama's mass appeal. Do you think that this will do more good or harm for the President's 2012 re-election campaign?
