BROOKLYN, N.Y.--Chicago public radio station WBEZ 848 host Alison Cuddy chatted with me about the Democratic presidential primary and what Oprah Winfrey can do for Barack Obama. LINK to listen.
You may ask, why am I posting this morning from Brooklyn? Because later in the day I will head to Harlem to cover an Obama fund-raiser at the famed Apollo Theater. This is a heavy day of fund-raising for Obama; he has about five events booked in high dollar and low-end events.
Chicago Sun Times Washington Bureau Chief Lynn Sweet has been closely following the presidential race, and she says there’s a reason why celebs are coming out for their favorites right now.
Sweet tells Eight Forty-Eight's Alison Cuddy that Oprah’s aim is to turn out the vote in Iowa.
