Media titan Oprah Winfrey is throwing her considerable weight behind BARACK OBAMA's bid to become America's first black president after dismissing public opinion suggesting she should make a run for office.
Winfrey admits she's a huge fan of Obama's opponent and fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton, but Obama has her vote.
Speaking on Ellen Degeneres' chat show today (22FEB07), Winfrey admits, "I'm feeling Barack."
She continues, "I don't just love him. I respect him. I think he's a fresh new voice in politics. I think what he can do for this country would be amazing."
Winfrey has spent the past four years dismissing reports she's planning a political charge for the White House.
