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.

Not could win, but would win. By a wide margin.

Name one thing Hillary was successful at accomplishing.

(Being appointed or elected isn't an accomplishment)..


She was fired from the Watergate commission for ethics violationsl

She left the Rose Law firm with overbilling scandle ETHICS VIOLATION

She was Chair of the Healthcare Commission, she violated Sunshine laws ETHICS VIOLATION

She was elected Senator, she did not have one bill that she was the original sponsor to be even brought to a vote, she tried to claim Senator Abram's VA Healthcare Bill as her own, during her 2016 presidential campaign. Stolen Valor which is not ethical

She Was appointed SOS, she lied to the FBI, she Lied to Congress she Lied Unethical and a crime.


She has not succeeded with anything except Graduate College.


Oprah and Trump built and ran Businesses, they had failures but they had many more successes than failures. At times they used poor judgement but their Judgement has been correct more often than wrong.

Even the Twitter Trumps Twitter bombs with NOKO has brought them back to the table for talks with SOKO
Thanks from Sabcat and Jimgorn

Au contraire mon ami, being elected or appointed to high political position is indeed a accomplishment. Your saying otherwise is irrelevant.
When will you people learn that just saying something does not make it an objective fact?

I agree. Oprah was interviewed months ago and here's what she said at THAT time: On Jimmy Kimmel Live: “For many years, I used to think — until this election year, I thought — ‘Wow, I have no… Why do people say that? I have no qualifications to run.’ I’m feeling pretty qualified. After this year, I’m feeling really qualified.”

"AFTER this year I'm feeling really qualified?"

WHY YES, because there's one thing we've learned from the 2016 election and THAT is we no longer need a qualified candidate--at least not in the historical/traditional sense.
The voters rejected a candidate with possibly more experience than anyone who's ever run for president, which means.........
The only qualification a candidate needs is: 1) Natural born citizen--Oprah was born in Mississippi. 2) Must be 35 yrs of age or older--Oprah is almost 64 yrs old.
That's pretty much it, since Oprah hasn't served two terms in office. No governing experience necessary. No knowledge of law, legislation, history, court systems--no need to worry about the constitution or foreign policy.

Oprah knows LOTS of billionaires so her cabinet should be easy to fill. She can donate her $400K salary to the charity of her choice. Steadman can live somewhere else OR the WHouse....just like Melania. Oprah can appoint family members as advisors and THEY can run her companies, in absentia.

Sounds like a perfect solution to all our problems.
