Oprah may run for President in 2020.

According to CNN  several inside sources have reported that Oprah Winfrey has been actively considering running for President in 2020.

“President Winfrey” was the talk of the entertainment world after Winfrey accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes. And the “Oprah for president?” possibility was a top story on morning TV.” – Brian Stelter of CNN

The discussion was sparked last night when Oprah gave her fiery speech at the Golden Globe Awards. See the full transcript below;

“I’ve interviewed and portrayed people who’ve withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights. So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.”

In the political climate that we are facing, it doesn’t seem crazy that a celebrity would throw their hat in the ring.

If anyone can recall, Kanye West also pledged to run in 2024 alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (even if it was jokingly).

While they don’t share the same views, it could be said that Donald Trump opened the door once again, though he wasn’t alone in pioneering the concept – who can forget the Governator or Ronald Regan’s past?

What are your thoughts? Should she run and would you support her?
