The mystery man who let Oprah Winfrey cry on his shoulder in front of all the TV cameras in Chicago on election night? We asked readers yesterday and got responses from across the country: He's Sam Perry, a Silicon Valley journalist turned tech consultant and investor. How did he get that primo front-row spot? Records show that he gave about $3,700 to the Obama campaign; we're told he helped raise money from others in the Bay Area. Perry didn't return our calls or e-mails yesterday; maybe he's saving his stories for today, when we're told he'll appear live on Oprah's show.
