Some quotes from Oprah's speech for Obama.
"I understand the difference between a book club and free refrigerators. I understand the difference between that and this critical moment in our nation's history."
"We need a president who cares about our relationships with our friends and our enemies."
"It's a dangerous imbalance when we fail to realize that all human hearts are the same."
"these are dangerous times... we are facing a lot of explosive issues..."
there are those who say Barack Obama should wait his turn.... but none of us is god. we don't know what the future holds. so we must respond to the pressures and the fortunes of history when that moment strikes and Iowa i believe that moment is now."
"For the very first time in my life I feel compelled to stand up and speak out for the man who has a new vision for America."
