Oprah Winfrey said on Monday she's still “100 percent behind" President Obama, but won’t have time to campaign for him this year.

“I actually love our president and have the utmost respect for him and that office and what it takes to be there," Winfrey told CBS’s Early Show. "I will not be out because I'm trying to fix a network.”

 

Winfrey threw her support behind Obama four years ago and even hit the campaign trail on his behalf. But she said that problems with the low-rated Oprah Winfrey Network will keep her from being an active participant in the campaign this time.
