Her endorsement of the presidential bid of Senator Barack Obama appears to have alienated some of the middle-aged white women who make up the bulk of her television audience, many of whom support Senator Hillary Clinton.
Since Oprah endorsed Senator Barack Obama some of her white female fans are livid. Some of that hate is still on display on the Oprah.com message boards. This reminds me of the hate that was posted when Imus made the statement about the basketball team. I believe she feels very strong about Obama so she made a choice to back him so I don't see a problem with that. I personal believe her season has come and gone and she is moving toward that new light what ever it might be.
