At Corrente, Libby Liberal has an interesting post.
She's talking about the costs Oprah must carry for selling Barack. While I agree with that aspect, I am also aware (though Libby leaves it out so she may not be) that Oprah also humanized Bush. She had him on her show in the lead up to the 2000 election and she found him funny and charming. There was even the famous photo-op from the show of Bush kissing her.
If you've forgotten that kiss, you can click here and here. The first link, CBS, tells you (in the photo caption) that the photo is from September 19, 2000.
