Back in the presidential race for 2000 George Bush was trailing Al Gore by ten points. Then on September 19, 2000, Mr. Bush made an appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s television show. Mr. Bush talked about how he quit drinking and how he has a love of family and for his daughters. He talked about everything that the viewers of Oprah love. He sold himself. After the show aired, and without Ms. Winfrey actually endorsing his campaign, managed to revive his languishing bid for the presidency.
