Oprah's Mystery Man Exposed!

11/6/2008 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The man whose shoulder Oprah Winfrey used to cry on at Barack Obama's victory rally was a total stranger -- but we found out who he is.
Oprah Winfrey
Sam Perry, a corporate development consultant, happened to be in the right place at the right time and comforted lady O as she cried for joy.

Stedman better watch his step.

UPDATE 4:43 PM ET -- O and Perry have already set up a second date -- on her show! He'll appear on Friday's episode.

Where exactly was Stedman (aka Sideman)?
Why wasn't he there with her? Did he vote for the other team?

Oh! For the record, you can thank the CRAZY RELIGIOUS RIGHT FOR THAT BOGUS PROP 8 CRAP!

You still want someone like McCain/Palin in office? They BOTH were against Gay marriage. McCain not as much as Palin, but because he was so hellbent on kissing the asses of the Religious Right he would've supported it and HE'S NOT EVEN A RELIGIOUS PERSON!! Yeah, the Conservatives are such good people! NOT!

KEEP YOUR LAWS OFF MY BODY AND OUT OF MY BEDROOM!!! SO MUCH FOR CONSERVATIVES WANTING LESS GOVERNMENT, SOUNDS LIKE THEY WANT TO CONTROL ME MORE THAN THE DEMS DO. OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE!

You Go, Judge Joe    

We need to move on. My husband has had four "bosses" since he entered the military, and actually, NONE of them have been that terrific. Time will tell...

By the way, has anyone thought about the line of succession to the White House? Obama - Biden - Pelosi!!!! Heaven help us all! Please let me know if I'm wrong regarding this.

I thought it was so funny. I told my friend, "He wouldn't dare tell Oprah to stop leaning on my back."

Fan Since 2007!!!    

Bigots and racists are a dying breed that belong to the dark ages of the twentieth century. Did ANYONE see there were as many white people cheering Obama as minorities? Our young people know this. A new Age is upon us.

Don't worry Im Leaving    

Oprah is one of the most powerful women in the world. (if not the most) And Barack Obana is now President of the most powerful nation in the world. And they both experienced racism, White people may be in trouble-LOL!

I was there, the cameras only focused on Oprah maybe twice. It was CNN, she could hardly control that. The crowd ROARED when the camera went on her......she laughed. She was there...in the moment as were we all.
