Rep. Diane Watson, D-Calif., a longtime supporter of Hillary Clinton, reportedly took offense to a comment made by presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama during his recent meeting with members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Sources told ABC News that during the pow wow on Thursday afternoon, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, a Clinton supporter, suggested that Obama and his campaign reach out to the millions of women still upset and disappointed that Clinton lost in the primaries. Obama agreed that the Democratic Party has a ways to go before it can completely heal, and expressed hoped that the Clinton supporters in the room would help as much as possible. According to Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., Obama then said, “However, I need to make a decision in the next few months as to how I manage that since I’m running against John McCain, which takes a lot of time. If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.” Rep. Watson, reportedly, bristled at his use of the term “get over it,” finding the phrase dismissive and off-putting. “Don’t use that terminology,” Watson told Obama. But, not everyone in the room absorbed the comment in the same manner. “I, personally, as a Hillary supporter, did not take that as something distasteful,” Clarke said. “Nothing like that.” But, Watson “latched on to those three words,” Clarke said.


The 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday started off with a win for Tyra Banks in the category of Outstanding Informative Talk Show, which offered one of the more memorable acceptance speeches of the evening. “They said that ‘The Tyra Banks Show’ would last two weeks and we are entering our fourth season this September,” she told the crowd gathered at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood. “I just have a message for everybody out there: When you have a dream, there are going to be so many people out there who tell you you cannot do it, that you are not good enough. And I want you to tell them to kiss your dimply, flat, juicy, bootylicious, skinny, jiggly, saggy, fat ass!” Kristoff St. John of CBS’s “The Young and the Restless” won for Outstanding Supporting Actor, giving the daytime drama three wins overall and the soap star his first Emmy in the adult category. His 1992 win was for Outstanding Younger Actor. The night’s big winners were Ellen DeGeneres, who won her fourth consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host; and Rachel Ray, whose Oprah Winfrey-produced program upset “Ellen” to take the Outstanding Talk Show prize. Although Winfrey has taken herself out of the running since 1999, her presence at the Daytime Emmys was felt in various forms throughout the ceremony. Banks also said in her acceptance speech: “I want to thank Oprah Winfrey for her inspiration. She is the queen. She will always be the queen.” Also, DeGeneres addressed talk that she should follow in Oprah’s footsteps and withdraw her name from contention after winning best talk show host four years in a row. “I’m not going to take my name out,” DeGeneres told reporters backstage. “Oprah has made so many bad choices. Look at her career.” Regis Philbin, a lifetime achievement award recipient Friday, began his acceptance speech by saying: “What a night. Tyra Banks told me to kiss her big beautiful, and I found out that I’m older than the ‘Guiding Light.'” Sherri Shepherd and Cameron Mathison served as co-hosts for the evening. The complete list of winners is listed below.


After the first stop of his 14-city North American tour Wednesday, Stevie Wonder told reporters that it was “nice” to be on the road again, and he’s loving the fact that his jaunt takes place during the summer months. “Performing in the summer is always fun, there’s something magical about the summer,” he said during a conference call Wednesday from Long Island. The trek ends July 12 in Canada, and comes on the heels of his successful road show in 2007 that was his first series of concerts in more than a decade. Other stops on the current tour include Chicago, Detroit and Los Angeles. Wonder, 58, says the overall theme of his tour is unity. “I think that we have to really come together for the common ground and be about the perpetuation of life,” Wonder said. “No matter what religion or color or ethnicity that we are, we have to be about the perpetuation of life.”
