    Oprah and Olympics

    Did anyone else find it mildly amusing that Oprah thought she could honestly do some good going to Denmark to lobby for the Olympics in Chicago?

    I applaud her for giving it a try and of course the money and effort it took to go over there.

    She's an american icon however and who the heck in the international commmunity is really going to know who she is? It's like the top TV host from England or Germany coming over here and lobbying for something. I'd wonder who this is first of all and then wonder why that person is there in addition to the current Olympic rep's from that country.

    The Obama's are a different story. That made a lot more sense to me having them lobby. World players with instant recognition and power.

    It just seemed a little cocky to me....

    Because I enjoy sex with women, and once they find out you've golden showered their supreme leader...no sex for you!

    Oprah is a legend in her own mind. She puts a picture of herself on EVERY issue of her O magazine.

    The whole thing is preposterous with our President and his wife going. Oprah and Obama got a good vacation I'm sure. And I doubt Op spent any money going over there - her trip was most likely funded by Chicago or someone. Michelle Obama stole the show. nice.

    Stop with the Obama on this one. Every other country sent their King/President/or any other leader. Oprah I understand the confusion. Obama not going? It would just look bad for the U.S. shot at the Olympics, and of course any leader would want that economic boost in their country.

    That is wrong. In fact this is the FIRST time a US President did this.

    What is wrong? The leaders of all the other countries in the running were there.

    Calm down.
