America woke up Monday with a crazy idea in its addled brain: Oprah Winfrey could be the next president of the United States.

The notion has tugged at the imagination for as long as Winfrey has been famous, but her barnstorming speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday electrified much of the 56 percent of the populace that disapproves of her fellow television personality, President Trump. The possibility of a Winfrey campaign, on Monday at least, seemed capable of uniting both ends of the political spectrum.

“I want her to run for president,” Meryl Streep told The Washington Post just after the Globes ceremony. “I don’t think she had any intention [of declaring]. But now she doesn’t have a choice.”

“Oprah. #ImWithHer,” tweeted Bill Kristol, scion of neoconservatism and the original promoter of Sarah Palin, whose tongue-in-cheek declaration gave way to an objective case for her candidacy: “Understands Middle America better than Elizabeth Warren,” he tweeted. “Less touchy-feely than Joe Biden, more pleasant than Andrew Cuomo, more charismatic than John Hickenlooper.”

The question lingering under this surprising groundswell: Are we now at a point where we believe celebrity is a prerequisite for winning (let alone governing)? Jokes about Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson being so widely likable that he, too, could run for president have recently morphed into something like actual candidate buzz; the wrestler-turned-actor recently said he’s “seriously considering” a run.

Two Oprah threads and nobody gets a car, what gives.

I have to also say Oprah is also shown she is more qualified than Hillary ever was.

Trump was more qualified than Hillary. if Hillary's economic plan had been implemented we would still be looking for a growing economy, and ISIS would still hold much of Iraq and Syria.
Thanks from roastpork and Jimgorn

She said in an interview a month or so that she definitely was not going to run.

That being said i have been saying for years that she would win if she ran and that was before trump ascended to the throne. I think that the DNC promising the job to her lizardness, mistress clinton was why she was not part of 2016.

Now, IMO 2020 would not be the good timing depending on the 2nd half of trumps four years. She would win hands down in 2024 especially if she used that time to make herself even more appealing to middle America. Specifically males 14- 30.

So, the road to the White House used to be finding a billionaire patron to go with your resume; now it's make yourself a billionaire first and become a reality tv star or talk show host to get the necessary name recognition. Is that how you find the best candidates for the job?
Thanks from RNG and Gordy
