Oprah's Got a Crush on Obama!

7/17/2007 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah has a crush on ObamaChat empress Oprah Winfrey put rumors to rest that she might be running for president -- by instead throwing her hefty support behind democratic candidate Barack Obama. Lucky Obama will benefit from an Oprah-fied fundraiser to be held at the daytime diva's massive Santa Barbara mansion this September, reports today's L.A. Times.

Those thinking of attending should start saving now: Getting in the door will cost $2,300 -- that's the maximum individual contribution for primary season. Collected contributions of $25,000 or more will score you access to a VIP reception, and a donation of $50,000 or more will garner a seat at a private VIP dinner with the possible next president.

Think Isaiah Washington, who has also thrown his support behind Barack, was invited? Doubtful!

Why not just come out and fess up to being a damn muslim? Kieth Ellison got elected in Minnesota and he didn't try to hide it. Just don't push it on me. I don't like towels on my head unless I am washing my hair thank you. Ever been to the mall of america? It looks like freakin Mecca! They converge there and take over the place

I applaud people of color who decide to vote based on merit rather than color.

No muslim will ever be president here, period.

Their laws are too strict, i.e., no pork, for one. The pork producers in America, everyone from Oscar Mayer to farmer Joe will prevent a muslim from aquiring any power.

We are so offensive to them, our clothes (American designers$$$), our holidays (Christmas, anyone- retail would collaps), our women (N.O.W. had better speak up soon), muslims could never take power in America.

#78 I think you are wrong. Why are there so many muslims in this country if we are so offensive to them? Do ya think they just might want to take over?

They are here because this is the greatest country in the world.

And yes, I KNOW they want to take over- that's what their book tells them to do.

What about us paying for them to have public foot baths in public places? What about the cab drivers in Minneapolis not taking passengers who have alcohol or have been drinking? This is happening now. We will have places here in the good ole U.S.A> that follow sharia law befor eya know it.

Once a muslim, always a muslim. Their creed is that if you turn away from Mohamad's teachings, you are to be KILLED.

Obama can claim to be a Christian, because muslims are taught to ALWAYS lie to non-muslims. He can say, without crossing his fingers, anything he thinks we want to hear, whether it's true or not.

They all lie- it's what their book tells them to do!
