Applauding the news that her candidate, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, has clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, Oprah Winfrey has issued a statement.

"I'm euphoric, I've been doing the happy dance all day," Winfrey, 54, tells Entertainment Tonight.

"I'm so proud of Barack and [his wife] Michelle Obama and what this means for all of us ... the new possibilities for our country. And if he wants me to, I'm ready to go door to door," added Winfrey, who has been on the campaign trail with the candidate since last year.

Meanwhile, Michelle Obama is slated to appear as a guest co-host on The View June 18.
