The Obama’s Stop to See Oprah on their Way to NY

Obamas Chicago Oprah

CHICAGO — President Barack Obama flew home to Chicago on Wednesday to help his pal and supporter Oprah Winfrey close out her syndicated talk show with a "big get" – an interview with him.

Obama and his wife, Michelle, took turns answering Winfrey’s questions during a taped interview at her studio, her first in 25 years with a sitting president and first lady.

Winfrey has announced that she’s ending her top-rated program on May 25 after a quarter-century on television.

The Obamas’ interview is scheduled to air on Monday.

The president’s day of politicking was continuing later Wednesday with travel to New York for his first fundraising sweep of the city since announcing his re-election bid this month. Three Democratic Party fundraisers were scheduled across midtown Manhattan, including an event at the home of financier and former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine and a dinner at The Waldorf-Astoria hotel. Obama was not due back at the White House until the wee hours of Thursday.
