Oprah’s Presidential Forum

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

In the new issue of O magazine, we learn all the important things about the candidates: That Mitt likes Ann’s meatloaf cakes and Barack likes pizza night at the White House. That if Romney watched Obama’s Denver convention four years ago, he at least enjoyed the Stevie Wonder concert, and that Obama digs Roy Orbison. 

When asked what “what they like about their opponent,” the president told Oprah: “I really like the healthcare bill that he passed in Massachusetts.  It was great.” 

Unfortunately the president missed the state-level aspect. 

Romney’s answer to the same was: “Well, I’m glad he got Osama bin Laden, that’s one.  A man’s been in office three and a half years, he does hundreds of things.  I’m sure there are a few that are fine.”
