The last leg of the Oprah and Obama show will be held today in South Carolina and I am going to gauge the reaction of black folk to this huge celebrity spectacle. Pray for me, my car is need of service but I just can’t stay away. I watched animatedly the reaction in Iowa and was amazed by the response. 18,000+ thousand in Des Moines alone. The horrible weather today in Iowa ain’t nothin to sneeze at. The event in South Carolina will surely rival that as the biggest crowd of the campaign. Oprah is a tremendous draw and sistahs hold her in higher esteem than they do Hillary. We shall see if it does the trick.
Addendum: I am still writing a post about this experience and trying to fully account for everything that happened. Stay tuned.
