Oprah Winfrey is the center of power

This photo was taken at the Madame Tussauds' in New York, where they celebrated <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PEPLT007408" title="Barack Obama" href="/topic/politics/government/barack-obama-PEPLT007408.topic">President Obama's</a> birthday in early August. It shows the wax figures of three United States presidents, a former secretary of state and chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. And who's that lady right in the middle? That's right: Oprah. Even at Obama's fake wax birthday celebration, the O commands the center stage.<br>

If new denominations are ever added to U.S. currency, want to take bets on whether Oprah will join the ranks of Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Hamilton as non-presidents who get their faces on the bills? We'll bet a million dollars (soon to be known as the Oprah).<br>
