The Oprah of the ancient world

"Queen Vashti was like the Oprah of the ancient world. She had influence and lots of it. But according to the story, she made one fatal mistake. She made her decisions alone. She discussed with no one before answering the king’s request. Had she had even one trusted advisor, maybe her answer would have been different. In contrast we learn later than Queen Esther ran everything past her trusted advisor, Mordecai."
