Oprah Winfrey For President?

January 8, 2018

As James and I watched the Golden Globes later last night–minus the commercials–and following the speech made without notes by Oprah Winfrey– I tuned to James and said, “She should run for president.”

Today the news is that Oprah is “actively thinking” about running for president, two of her close friends told CNN Monday.

The two friends, who requested anonymity in order to speak freely, talked in the wake of Winfrey’s extraordinary speech at the Golden Globes Sunday night, which spurred chatter about a 2020 run.

Some of Winfrey’s confidants have been privately urging her to run, the sources said.  One of the sources said these conversations date back several months. The person emphasized that Winfrey has not made up her mind about running.

    I agree too but as I watched her she gave such an inspiring speech that my first reaction was we need someone inspirational in politics at the national level. I, too, am not keen on infotainment of the type that Trump has run on.

    “Those who cannot remember the past (or the appalling present) are condemned to repeat it.” So the duh-mocrats say, let’s run a tv personality with no experience in government. What can go wrong?
