Duel of the Week: Oprah vs. Streisand

oprah-streisand.jpegIt’s been a while since we threw down our dueling gauntlet here on Suburbarazzi, but this post over on our sister blog, Politics on the Hudson, has all the makings of a mega-celebrity death match. Yes, Oprah vs. Streisand.

After Barack Obama’s campaign announced that Winfrey would join him on the campaign trail in the coming weeks, Clinton fired back today with news that Babs Streisand would be coming out to support her. As the Streisand endorsement said, “Hillary Clinton has already proven to a generation of women that there are no limits for success. She is driven by her passion for public service and her belief in the enormous potential of our country. Smart, capable and strong in her convictions, Hillary has transcended the dictates of what is thought to be possible for our time. â€?

That’s so sweet! Now, if only anyone other than Rosie O’Donnell cared a bit who or what Streisand endorses, maybe it would make a bit of difference.
