Is Oprah still trying to form a cult of personality around Michelle Obama? Apparently successfully, since hundreds are paying big bucks to hear her shill her new book whilst other authors beg attendance. A tender moment here with the architect of the Iraq war & a marriage with the architect of intervention in Syria & Yemen & continuance in Afghanistan, Iraq, & Libya. This is called ‘working across the aisles’ in US politics where there is no meaningful difference between the two parties.
