District Attorney Kamala Harris Makes Oprah's 2010 'O Power List'
|Big guns are backing Kamala Harris|
That's right: Harris has been admitted to the elite club of playas in "The 2010 O Power List," a bunch of women whom Oprah, um, thinks are powerful. Harris' entry is titled "The power of taking a stand," and highlights her anti-truancy initiative.
Meanwhile, those alarmingly low felony trial conviction rates we reported on in May got nary a mention. How 'bout it, Oprah: "The power of failing to secure convictions in double-murder cases?" (Incidentally, our favorite on the Power List is undoubtedly Command Sergeant Major Teresa King, whose category is "The power of power." King's pull-quote: "I just want people to be able to fly.")
Come to think of it, it was during the grand Harris media meltdown of early summer -- much of the negative attention focused on her office's mishandling of a scandal at the city's crime lab -- that Harris got another big celebrity boost: the endorsement of Tyra Banks. Now, Tyra, may have her naysayers, but Oprah? Steve Cooley just might find himself outgunned at this fight.
