Oprah Winfrey seems like a very nice person but as a President, not for me. After Trump it seems like anything goes but not for me. It is time we get someone with some experience in politics to run for office. After the Ronald and the Donald, a mockery has been made of those in office. Ronald lucked out, (we lucked out) he had some good advisors, and it was a time in our history that we could afford a misstep or two. But what we need is greatness in the Presidency, something we haven’t had in a very long time. Now as a Vice-President, she’d be real solid, except of course if something happened to the President. Vice-Presidents preside over the Senate and meet with people. Who better than Oprah? I don’t know if she has the economic or social vision to be a good President. I guess we have become disgusted in our choice of Presidents that most people seem better.
“Oprah Winfrey brought the Golden Globes audience to their feet with a powerful speech as she accepted the Cecil B DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award on Sunday night, prompting speculation about a run for the White House.
The notion of the talk show host and entrepreneur running for president against Donald Trump in 2020 was raised by the awards’ host, Seth Meyers, in his opening monologue.
“In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House correspondents dinner, jokes about how he was unqualified to be president,” Meyers said. “And some have said that night convinced him to run. And if that’s true, I would just like to say, ‘Oprah you will never be president.’”
After Winfrey’s speech her partner, Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times: “It’s up to the people. She would absolutely do it.”
