Oprah for President? Broadcaster 'would absolutely do it' after barnstorming Golden Globes speech

The article goes on to say:

Oprah Winfrey is the latest celebrity to receive support for a run for US President after inspiring thousands with her acceptance speech for the Cecil B DeMille award at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
So many were impressed by Winfrey's speech that calls for her to run for president started to be posted on social media.

By the time Winfrey had collected her award, the notion that she could follow Trump as a TV celebrity-turned-politician, was being discussed. The Los Angeles Times reports that Winfrey's long-term partner Stedman Graham, said that "It's up to the people. She would absolutely do it."

Didn't you do a thread before predicting that Hilary Clinton would be the next POTUSA a while before the actual election? I can easily see Orpah Winfrey standing for the Democrats.

Is she related to the O'Winfreys of Blanchardstown?

It is the failure of politics which enables people who are not politicians, including Donald Trump, to become electable.

Politicians need to take back politics if they can.

Entirely possible , ticks all the identity PC boxes for the Democrats , they would have her in a heartbeat. Not sure how well she would go in the rust belt states though.

What qualifications does she have other than being a tv presenter.
Self-made billionaire, philanthropist, incredibly well spoken and able to connect with an electorate, not Elizabeth Warren.

If the satisfaction with Trump stays in the toilet due to his behaviour rather than his policies, then having an undisputed "good person" as the rival candidate is a good idea.

I don't see it happening here.

Btw I predicted Hillary (even spelt that wrong) in 2012 so don't all rush to the bookies.petunia

I changed allegiance to Bernie when he launched his campaign in 2015 ( but remained convinced Clinton would still win right up to election night).

I'm hoping Bernie gets another go America could do with a democratic socialist and New Deal-era progressive, after the current shambles plays out.

The Dems going for Bernie or Hillary again would be fantastic fun. At that point you just raze the country and give it over to the roaches. Start from scratch.

Will there be another President after Donald? Will there be anything or anybody left after Fat 'Un lets rip?

The woman has her own television network on the back of the highest rated syndicated talk show in US history.
