I laugh at other's misfortunes    

That dude should have rented his shoulder out to her for the evening. And what was she doing in the audience pretending to be common folk? How many times you think she's gonna come knocking on the White House door?

Oprah is a self serving egotistical witch. She claims to be so spiritual and in touch with God but doesnt live by his word.

Knowing the way Americans make a celebrity out of anybody, this guy will have his own talk show soon and make millions.

Silly Americans.

wondering    

I think Oprah and Steadman are over - they were showing the crowd outside the White House and Steadman was there, with a woman. When he saw the camera on him, he and she ducked. Oprah was gushing about how there has never been a night like the election night in the history of the planet, blah, blah, blah - her usual hyperboyle. The fact that she spent the night hanging all over some total stranger who was with other people is really odd. Harvey, get your team on it. I think it was on CBS that I saw Steadman at the Whitehouse. I was afraid they were going to make it all about Oprah, like a lot of shows often do, and then I saw it was not her. She poped up at Grant Park in Chicago, and yes, they were focusing way too much on her there.

Maybe Oprah will give him a free car! No wait - Maybe Oprah will go get a free car from GM and then re-gift it to him like she did for all those teachers, letting everyone believe for awhile she was just sooo generous.

Nobody In Particular    

#7 "John In Canada"

Especially with such quality programming as Corner Gas(cancelled) and Robson Arms(should be)... not to mention the knock-off programs such as Canadian Idol and So You Think You Can Dance Canada.
Yeah Canadian programming is so much more interesting. Ha!

Steadman took Oprah to Grant Park so whoever is saying "Steadman in the crowd at the White House' is off the mark. Why she leaned on a stranger when Steadman brought her to the Grant Park rally is a mystery---maybe he got caught up in the line for the Porta Potties there----to which Oprah admitted it was the first time in her life she had ever used one.

And this woman should be believed to be "one of us"? Hope she wiped.
