Is Oprah really a viable presidential candidate — IAN HART

Warren: 'I don't know' if Americans want another celebrity president like Oprah

"I'll beat Oprah. Oprah would be a lot of fun".

"I think we need more role models like her that are speaking to young women and trying to restore some hope".

If she did choose to run, she would square off against President Donald Trump. While he supports the idea of Winfrey running, it would also punctuate how Trump's candidacy has altered political norms.

But he added: "I don't think she's going to run".

And as for the chances of #Oprah2020, it is possible according to sources who told CNNMoney that Winfrey was "actively considering" a bid for president.

People are listening to their own wants - people really like Oprah, and she's see as the acceptable and palatable face of black female success.

Talk of media icon Oprah Winfrey running for the White House started even before she took the stage and set it on fire with a speech that resounded way beyond the auditorium hosting the Golden Globes.

Her partner, Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times: 'It's up to the people.

One of the women who has accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct has slammed his daughter Ivanka as "a hypocrite" for her Time's Up tweet following the Golden Globes. Actors and actresses wore black to protest the sexual harassment that has been in the news for past several months.

A representative for Winfrey has not responded to requests for comment. "She would absolutely do it".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., noted Winfrey, like Trump, lacks any kind of governing experience. It's amusing to already hear some Republicans dismissing Winfrey's candidacy because she has no political experience, after they nominated Trump, who not only had no political experience, but has achieved far less in the entertainment business than Oprah.

On Tuesday, King suggested that her best friend's viewpoint remained unchanged. I think we'd win easily, actually'.

"I also know, after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have the right to change your mind". "Let's just say we've all heard things about each other, haven't we?"

"I said, "Lady, it is going to cost me some money but you are going to shoot the lights out". "He would never do that". "I thought that they would be talking about it because it was powerful". A spokeswoman said as recently as October that the media mogul "is not running for office".

Winfrey leads among all races, but has her widest victory margin among the African-American community. Good for her for focusing on that. I do think that.

Much of the awards ceremony had that focus.
