Oprah Winfrey had a special live post-election special on Wednesday, and screamed with joy over the victory of Obama. Winfrey publicly endorsed Obama and campaigned for him, but hadn't really talked about him on her show since her endorsement last winter.
But as she put it on Wednesday, she is "UNLEASHED!" Wearing a "Hope Won" shirt and waving an American flag, she celebrated with unbridled joy for the first several minutes before settling down to talk to a panel including Peggy Noonan and John Lewis. She also joked that if Obama hadn't won she would probably be in the hospital today "on a drip."
