Oprah 'intrigued' by idea of running for president, friend Gayle King says

Oprah 'intrigued' by idea of running for president, friend Gayle King says

It's possible Oprah could prove herself worthy of the attention being put on the idea of her running for president.

But look, I get it. Democrats have been traumatized by recent events, and one of the responses is to throw up your hands and say, "Fine then". The system of so-called "party candidates" started to lose strength in 2004, and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton may be the last of them, he said. "At the same time, politics is ridiculous right now".

"President Winfrey" was the talk of the entertainment world after Winfrey accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes. "I want a woman President, but not her".

"I remember his tie, it was white, and of course his skin was black, and I had never seen a black man being celebrated like that", she said.

In recent years, Winfrey has lent her star power to endorse Democratic presidential candidates: Barack Obama when he was seeking to become the first black US president in 2008 and Hillary Clinton in her campaign against Trump in 2016.

"Just saw @Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes".

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men", she said to a standing ovation.

"Great!" Milano responded to Ivanka's tweet. She died in December, just before her 98th birthday.

Trump himself has been accused of being a serial sexual predator by more than a dozen women.

At least one emphasized that Winfrey had made no firm decision on a run.

A representative for Winfrey did not reply to a request Monday for comment from The Associated Press.

With BlackBerry's pivot to a software-first company, such deals will only help in its turnaround efforts. It is underlined by the number of industry leaders already engaged and looking to utilize it.

"It's up to the people", Stedman Graham was quoted as telling The Los Angeles Times.

Would Winfrey be more open to sharing those personal details? Over 30 years, she became the face of television talk shows, starred and produced feature films, and began her own network. "But now she doesn't have a choice".

"Yeah, I'll beat Oprah", he told reporters in the the Cabinet Room during a meeting on immigration with members of Congress. "I can think of so many others more qualified!"

The President has spoken warmly of Ms Winfrey in the past, tweeting in 2012: "I adore Oprah". "I think we'd win easily, actually".

The President will have surprised few observers with his predicted outcome of any future White House race against Ms Winfrey. "If she'd do it, she'd be fantastic".

"It was the right person giving the right speech at the right time", she said. The president's son retweeted it, calling it "strange".

"So I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon", she said. If she does, she'll have the chance to make her best argument for why she should be president.

Winfrey said all the people she has portrayed or interviewed who have endured some of the ugliest things life can throw at them have shared a common trait: An ability to maintain hope for a brighter day.

And here, Winfrey has much more in common with Trump than her admirers might care to admit while caught up in this 2020 fever dream. That could soften what Palmieri describes as an enduring resistance among some voters to women with political ambition.

I get why Oprah Winfrey is "actively thinking" about running for president (whatever that means).

Democrats and Republicans alike have admitted that Oprah would be a formidable opponent to Donald Trump.
