Broken Promises Already?

Barak & Oprah.jpg

As I watched my Oprah rerun last night (and I learned how to declutter my excess baby clothes in my front yard with an Australian clutter expert), I remembered something. Only a few short months ago, Barak Obama appeared on Oprah and PROMISED her that if he ran for office (this was before his announcement, of course) that he’d make the announcement on her show!! Well, Mr. Obama, you did not do this! You went “internet” over Oprah? You may have cost yourself the most important demographic in deciding the upcoming election: Oprah’s Book Club. Millions of chunky, white, mid-west Mom’s will be awaiting your explanation, Mr. Obama.

As for me? You gained even more street cred in my book for bypassing Oprah. Honestly, when you agreed to announce on her show, I rolled my eyes. So, yeah, good call.
