She said from Beyonce "in all her Beyonceness" to President Bush to President Obama all had the same concern, wanting to know how they did and if she understood what they had to say. She also joked that she considered putting something under each person's chair, like a free master's degree. She really is such an excellent speaker. Oprah received an honorary doctor of laws degree.
