Oprah Winfrey's long-term partner thinks she would "absolutely" run for president

"I did one of her last shows".

The idea of bumper stickers reading "Oprah 2020" may be a liberal fantasy, but some Democratic Party activists are chattering about a Winfrey for president campaign anyway. Does the kind of genuine enthusiasm Oprah inspires in her supporters add up to something the Democrats won't be able to find in another candidate in 2020?

Winfrey's impassioned speech Sunday night at the Golden Globes sparked talk about whether she might follow in the footsteps of another wildly wealthy media star who jumped into politics by campaigning for the highest office in the land, Donald Trump.

The actress and businesswoman accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday's ceremony and received a lengthy standing ovation, which she tried to calm down.

The band had rejected her offer of 40 percent of the song's publishing royalties, she claimed, demanding 100 percent. During a concert in Denver last January 7, Lana referred to " Get Free " as her "personal manifesto".

If Winfrey did run, it would be an interesting matchup, considering her opponent is such a huge fan of hers. "I like Oprah. I don't think she's going to run". Let's all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP!

Even earlier than that, Trump even suggested that he would like her as his running mate when he eventually ran for president.

The 64-year-old media mogul has become a cultural phenomenon over the past 30-plus years, born into a poor home in MS but breaking through as a television news and talk show personality in the 1980s.

She added: "I have been inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and powerful enough to stand up and tell their stories". Over 30 years, she became the face of television talk shows, starred and produced feature films, and began her own network.

This isn't the first time Oprah's name has been tossed into the political ring. She's really a great woman, though, she is a terrific woman. "She would absolutely do it". In fact, she was brought into the mix nearly 20 years ago by current President Donald Trump. That could soften what Palmieri describes as an enduring resistance among some voters to women with political ambition.

"I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice", Trump told King.
