Oprah back on the trail

Oprah last campaigned for Obama in early December.
Oprah last campaigned for Obama in early December.

(CNN) - Talk-show host Oprah Winfrey is set to headline a Barack Obama event in Los Angeles Sunday, two days before Democrats in California and 21 other states head to the polls.

The event will mark Winfrey's return to the campaign trail two months after the media mogul stumped for the Illinois senator in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, drawing record-breaking crowds and heavy media coverage.

Obama's wife Michelle and Caroline Kennedy will also attend the event, though the Illinois senator himself is scheduled to be in Delaware that day.

    Pathetic that Obama has to use Oprah as his Face Girl. Let's hear what he has to say.

    Oprah, stay home! I'm an Obama supporter and I want her to stay home because she's just going to make it worse for him.

    I’m over Oprah Winfrey. Celebrities need to stick to what they do well, entertain.

    Wonder if she's going to use her fake Southern accent again? Shouldn't she be picking out a new book for her club or something?

    Now, why in the world is seated Oprah closer to Obama then Michelle? Michelle, being Obama's wife should be the one sitting closest to him, not Oprah.
