During Thursday’s edition of Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace and her panel devoted almost an entire segment to praising the “powerful” and “persuasive” Oprah Winfrey.  Wallace went on to talk about “the Oprah effect happening right in front of us as the TV superstar knocked on doors stumping for Stacey Abrams, the Democrat running for Governor there.” Wallace urged her audience to “listen to what Oprah told the crowd at a campaign event this afternoon and judge for yourself the potential impact this rare, coveted endorsement will have.” Moveon.org’s Karine Jean-Pierre invoked a comparison to the last time Winfrey made a high-profile political endorsement: “And it reminds me of 2007, in December, when Oprah endorsed Obama and did that awesome event for Obama in South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina, where 30,000 people showed up. It made a difference.”  According to Jean-Pierre, Obama’s victory in the 2008 Democratic Presidential primaries shows “just how unmatched Oprah is.”
