(CNN) - Oprah Winfrey will be on hand when Barack Obama accepts the Democratic nomination in Denver – but the talk show host, who was a key presence at rallies for the Illinois senator during the primary season, won’t take the stage, a representative from her production company told CNN Wednesday.
The spokeswoman also denied rumors Winfrey was planning to spend thousands renting a home in Denver during the convention.
In June, shortly after Obama effectively clinched the Democratic nomination, Winfrey – who appeared with him in several key early-voting states, including Iowa, New Hampshire and California – said she was "euphoric” over his victory.
“I've been doing the happy dance all day,” she said in a statement then. “I'm so proud of Barack and Michelle and what this means for all of us, the new possibilities for our country.”
She added that she’d be happy to hit the trail again on his behalf: “And if he wants me to, I'm ready to go door to door."
Go Obama! Go Oprah! The perfect way to use your celebrity status... I agree George from Minneapolis!!
Change is coming America and we as voter have a say in
this change.This change will be and administration starting at the
white house and all government.We must have ours states
and local cities as well because the president can only do so
much.These issues with jobs and income start with them
because you have jobs that lay-off to get under budget and
hard working peoples loose their homes,cars,credit go bad,
childrens start falling behind in school.These are the real problem
in America,which have not really address nationally.Orpah,talk
about this issue on your show and Obama you speak of this on
your campaign trail.
OPRAH! OMG. OMG. OMG!!!!!
If Oprah's on board, then Obama must be the answer America is looking for because Oprah has made such an amazing contribution to American society. OMG.
Oprah's audiences are the uneducated of America. As are Obama's supporters. What a sham.
Thank you Howard Dean, for bring us one step closer to losing our liberties.
Oprah picked the winner she knew what Obama was capable of Oprah is a good person and I hope she can make a difference in November
Another supporter of the empty suit express!
If all this celebrity attention came mcBush's way...
TO justjoe: Read the news and educate your self. At first they chose a venue which was capable to hold 12,000 people. But Obama requested larger venue of 75,000. Those tickets sold within 24 hours. Your criticism proof how jealous and ignorant you are!
Oprah won't make any difference in the final analysis of the American People.
The final "in booth" decisions for 70% of Americans will be:
Who can we trust to work on USA being American ! Who puts America first in America. Who has the experience. Who will not put our border patrol in jail for doing their jobs while excusing repetitive drug dealers (that is a sick case with Campeon and Ramos, etc).
We'll vote for McCain, however hold our nose in the process.
Has nothing to do w/color of skin, etc. Obama is 1/2 white and that should be mentioned moreso.
Really sad to see American's following the spectacle that is Oprah and her support...
Makes sense since the people who watch her show which airs during most of America's workday...
Welfare checks for all...
Elect the Race Card playing, Flip Flopping, Hollywoodesc, UNexperienced, EMPYT SUIT...
Ya America that's what we need... Follow the leader Lemmings.
I no longer watch Oprah.
It is amazing to me how gullible the media and a lot of us are. The Republican Party tried to make the word "liberal" dirty in the 80’s, now they want people to believe that the word "celebrity" is bad. If Bush was so accepted and welcome by other countries like Obama, then the Iraq war would have different outcome. Many more countries would have worked with us.
Republicans have put this country to its lowest point since WWII; McOld cannot talk about any substance. The republicans have six years of total control in all the three branches of the government. What have they done with all that power? They gave us the war in Iraq that cost $10 billions per month, they turn the surplus from the Clinton administration to the largest deficit in history, our country trade deficits is at its highest ever, the dollar has become the Peso of the world. Here at home the credit problem is making a lot of people suffer. The unemployment is at it highest level in 20 years. McSenile with all his Adam like experience cannot address any of those problems after 26 years in Washington, all he can come out with is some childish attack ads, this is very sad for our country.
What's with all the negativity ? They are old friends ...went to church together, live in the same Area. She is just a friend happy to support a friend!
Oprah, good on you for willing to be soooooo supportive.
From the outside looking in,
Is there a reason why my posts are ignored ?
Two egomaniacs whose heads are just ready to pop! The two "O's," if you didn't know who I mean.
Now there's a shock!!!!!!!!!!!
Democrats just don't GET IT
Sure she won't speak,, hmmm who's on the Wed schedule besides bill? Is Oprah filling the vp slot.
Cool ! Now ALL the "celebrities" will be in one place!
Stomping for the "white House"
I hope this is NOT a sign of the "guests" we can expect if Ob is sucessful. The last time the WH was open to the public it was trashed roayally!
Absolut nonsense. Oprah is an idiot
It bothers me that "superstars" think they need to tell us who to vote for.
I support Obama, NOT because personalities like him, more inspite of their "endorsements"
justjoe... i attended the Berlin rally, there were no "german musicians" playing before, but nice try
Turns out I will be in Denver at the same time but CNN hasn't written an article about me yet. I mean, now it makes news just because Oprah will be in Denver? Something is seriously wrong at CNN, they obviously have an agenda if they consider this worthy of taking up space. Are they going to have a political ticker for every celebrity that is going to be in Denver during the convention? Is McCain paying them to do this?
There is a saying in my church. MAKE THE DEVIL MAD.......
I'm not suggesting republicans are devils but jealousy is most definitely a sin of big proportions.
It only adds to McCain's celebrity theme!
A lot of people moan and fuss about "hollywood liberal" this and "hollywood liberal" that, but when it comes down to it, they still watch the movies and the TV shows. The nation's center for moviemaking and tv shows isn't in Georgia or Alabama for a reason.
If you're going to moan about Hollywood, don't do it while consuming what they produce for your entertainment.
