Oprah Winfrey has been enamored with President Barack Obama since his acclaimed speech at the Democratic convention in 2004. And she still feels that way, the media mogul/TV personality told the hosts of MSNBC’s "Morning Joe"
"I'm feeling great about Obama's leadership,” Winfrey says. “I feel that everybody has a learning curve. The reason why I was willing to step up for him was because I believed in his integrity and heart."
That hasn’t changed, she says. “What he really wants for this country is to be greater, stronger, more innovative. I believe those principles are what really enforce his beliefs.”
And Winfrey has advice for those criticizing the president. "Everybody complaining ought to try it for a week," she says.
