DES MOINES, IA.-A thunder of applause greets Oprah Winfrey as she takes the stage, then silence as people hang on her words. Oprah Winfrey is making her first political stump speech for her friend, White House hopeful Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.)
Winfrey says she knows why she's here. She says that this political rally for Obama is not the same as her book-club or her give-away shows.
"I am not here to tell you what to think," she says.
Speaking out for Obama is "very, very personal for me.
"No, I've never done this before...Nervous, yes I am."
