Winfrey Supports Illinois Senator for President

Oprah Winfrey says she's not going to run for president or any other public office. But she says Senator Barack Obama is a presidential candidate she could support.

But the talk-show host and media icon says she'd "Do everything in my power to campaign for him..." if Obama ran for president. Winfrey says Obama has the potential to be a great leader.

Obama, a Democrat, has repeatedly said he doesn't plan to run for president in 2008.

Winfrey spoke with reporters yesterday after delivering the keynote speech at a luncheon at the Women's Business Development Center's annual conference.
