Oprah isn't running for president, except if she is — Gayle King

Oprah isn't running for president, except if she is — Gayle King

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson told Variety as recently as last month he would "100% consider" running for office-but probably not until 2024.

By Tuesday morning, Megyn Kelly was trying to have it both ways.

Even prior to the Golden Globes on Sunday night, there had been discussion and debate over Oprah Winfrey's potential for a presidential run.

The "radical transformation" of America's political culture that allowed President Trump to win in 2016 made Winfrey "uniquely positioned.to seek the Democratic nomination for president", he wrote. Stedman would never so cavalierly say absolutely she would do it. It's up to the people. "I don't think at this point she is actually considering it". Winfrey's appearance ended up taking nine minutes because of the applause, King added.

Winfrey's impassioned speech at the awards show has set that speculation alight all over again. Wire service provided by Associated Press.

"He's a very special man in that he's not the least bit intimidated by me or what I do".

Few candidates ever get a better springboard than a glitzy Hollywood event broadcast live on national television.

In 1999, he told Chris Matthews of "Hardball" that he was thinking about her as a running mate if he ran for president in 2000. While the host tried to persuade her to seek treatment too, she refused, and died three years later. Constitutionally speaking, tens of millions of Americans meet the basic qualifications, Winfrey included. That could soften what Palmieri describes as an enduring resistance among some voters to women with political ambition.

It seems the american election show more and more tends to fit the taste of the rednecks. In the episode he wakes up in 2000.

But the diminishing importance of qualifications isn't just all about Trump.

On 7 January 2018, Oprah Winfrey was honored with the Cecil B. deMille Award at the Golden Globes and used the opportunity to deliver a speech about women's empowerment, the "Me Too" movement, and changes on the horizon.

She also earned favorable marks from 51 percent of independents and 30 percent of Republicans. And she was right. The traditional "qualifications" required long political careers with the presidency as a pinnacle.

Trump, who has lauded Winfrey as worthy of the vice presidency, dismissed her Tuesday as a threat, albeit cordially. She spent decades building emotional connections with Americans through her daytime talk show. "Those were all her words", King said. "I'd love to have Oprah". CNN Money says the speech "sounded like the opening of a presidential campaign". Except, real or imagined, Winfrey's path to the White House will not be without a few bumps. And Oprah is not crazy.

That praise was roundly mocked on social media, given that her father is facing a number of sexual misconduct allegations. "That's a power that you have to respect". These tend to be make bold statements but don't bite much.
