Oprah for 2020 president could actually be happening

Winfrey's partner, Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times that "i$3 t's up to the people" if she runs for president.

Gidley's remarks came after Winfrey's speech about inequality at an awards show thrust her name into the political battlefield. "I dont know if were prepared for that as a country", Kimmel told reporters at the Television Critics Association?s press tour in Pasadena, California.

Not only has this allowed her to build a community, she says it also feeds into her focus on gaining power by being truthful about yourself and recognising other people's experiences. She opened the envelope and said five words that literally made history: "'The victor is Sidney Poitier.' Up to the stage came the most elegant man I had ever seen", Oprah began her speech. But in a post-Trump political landscape, that traditional path may not matter. "What does she do next with it?" said Alan Schroeder, a journalism professor at Northeastern University in Boston who has written on the intersection of show business and politics.

This involves ignoring voices around her who claim things are "too big of a risk" and instead listening to her inner voice when it tells her she is able to face those risks head on.

The nine-minute speech generated two standing ovations from the Hollywood glitterati and prompted 220,000 posts on social media mentioning the words "Oprah" and "president" in just 24 hours, said Todd Grossman of social media analytics company Talkwalker.

But at least one Republican politician believes she'd make a good political candidate: President Trump.

Oprah Winfrey speaks during the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, in 2013.

Ever since her moving speech at the Golden Globes this past Sunday, buzz is circulating that Oprah Winfrey should enter the 2020 presidential campaign. In 2015, Winfrey wore diamonds from Israeli jeweler Lev Leviev on the cover of O, her monthly magazine. The system of so-called "party candidates" started to lose strength in 2004, and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton may be the last of them, he said. Twitter users shared photos of Winfrey and Weinstein and captioned them with the hashtag #OprahKnew. We don't need Oprah.

Our next president will be a politician, with knowledge of our history and respect for our system of government and cultural norms. She had a meal at a Chabad home, met with five women from the Hasidic group and visited a mikvah, or Jewish ritual bath.

"If she decides to run, she certainly would be the top contender, no doubt about it", said Democratic strategist Joe Trippi, campaign manager of Howard Dean's presidential campaign in 2004. In a 1999 television interview when he said he was thinking about running for president the following year (although he did not), Trump declared, "Oprah would always be my first choice" for a running mate, adding, "she's brilliant" and "a very exceptional woman".

It's one thing for my children to hear a rousing, soul-stirring speech from a celebrity we all admire; but to witness it coming from a woman who looks like them is something else entirely.

Winfrey clearly has a dramatic public influence already: Weight Watchers, whose stock has skyrocketed since she bought 10% of the company in October 2015, got another lift Monday.
