It is one of the greatest moments I could even imagine, Oprah Winfrey said last night after witnessing Barack Obama’s historic win. Winfrey along with several other celebrities including Star Jones and Kerry Washington attended Obama’s victory rally Tuesday. “He walked into the family tent … to see him and his wife walk in filled you with a lot of pride to know that America is as we dreamed it would be,” said former ‘The View’ co-host Star Jones. “There were no VIP sections tonight, it was really about Barack Obama tonight.” Hollywood actress Kerry Washington was also amazed by Tuesday night’s results. “It’s unbelievable. Actually it is believable, people all over this amazing country have worked on a grassroots level and now he is the president elect.” Washington’s sentiment was echoed again by Star Jones who added: “He (Barack Obama) ran this campaign on his own terms with values and character.” “If he had lost tonight he would have been able to go home tonight and say I lost being me, but he won being him, which means he can lead being him with no regret.”
