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!

The idea of Oprah for president is about as laughable as Obama for president (and some others). Those of color really do stick together. They said they do and they are showing it. Race is all that seems to matter to them.

Voting for someone because they are black is as stupid as voting for someone because they are a woman. Boy I bet Hillary is pissed.

Obama is UNQUALIFIED to be President or Vice President. He's only been in the Senate since January of 2005, and he hasn't done anything there except campaign for President. I won't vote for him, and if he gets the Democratic nomination I will vote Republican for the first time in my life.

We are at war, and we need a President who knows what the hell he's doing. We don't need another unqualified President!

*************PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOU WANT YOUR MOUTH TO BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too bad that $$$$$ isn't going towards a campaigner who actually has a chance of winning. So I guess in a way it's perfect that Ofra is backing him with a name like "WIN-FREE"! HaHa! There's just no way this country will ever elect a black person - right, wrong. good or bad, it's a fact. She'd be better to spend the money on another self-idolizing school in Africa.

Unqualified? What about George Bush? He isn't qualified to clean a toilet. Jimmy Carter was only a damn Governor for Christ sake. Why isn't he qualified? He has a I.Q. twice G.W. and that ain't sayin much

"PHILLIP" ....
sounds like one of those guys who didn't get breast fed (and hasn't gotton any since) as a child...was picked on as a child.....a loner who HAS TO YELL to "feel" as though he is being heard.
Unable to carry on normal dialog or maintain normal relationships and is most comfortable when creating a hostile environment.
His superiority complex is classic inferiority feelings of self hate.
Time to take your meds Phillip.
