Obama-Oprah combo move rally location

News 12 This Morning, December 6, 2007

COLUMBIA, SC -- If you want to see Senator Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey, there is now enough room for you at their rally Sunday. Due to the overwhelming response for their trip to Columbia, South Carolina, campaign workers have moved the site to accomodate more people.
The previous location, the Colonial Center, simply wasn't big enough for the large crowd. The free tickets went fast, and the waiting list continued to grow by the minute, so workers decided to change their plans.
The new site will be Williams Brice Stadium on the Campus of the University of South Carolina. It can hold more than 80,000 people.
The rally starts at 2:30. You no longer need tickets to the event, but you are encouraged to sign a list. You can do that by going to www.my.barackobama.com/page/s/scoprah.

    Maybe in time Senator Obama will be seasoned and experienced enough to be our President, but now is not the time. It is scary that Oprah is promoting Obama for President. Remember she promoted the book that supposedly was non-fiction to find out the author made up the story.

    I really feel that celebrities should not use their influence to promote political candidates. Most are no more educated than the general public. I am disappointed in Oprah. Senator Obama is not experienced enough in any area that should be required of a Presidential candidate.

    I am suprized and disappointed in Oprah. Suprized at her not supporting a woman when her main purpose in life seems to be spreading the message of how bad men are. Disappointed that she appears to be following the selection criteria of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. I just hope people are not blinded by the celebrity and make their decisions on who is best qualified to lead this country and not on who the person is wanting to lead. This is not a "book of the month" type decision.
