Don't underestimate possibility of Oprah 2020

You may recall that in March of 2017, during a conversation on Bloomberg's The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations, Oprah told the billionaire that Donald Trump's presidential election was eye-opening for her.

In some ways, a Winfrey candidacy isn't that far fetched at a time in which a reality show star worked his way into the White House, shattering numerous norms along the way. "Oprah would be a lot of fun".

"I think she'll learn on the job the same way Bill Clinton learned - a former governor of Arkansas - or Barack Obama, a junior senator, learned on the job", he adds.

Naturally, Twitter had quite a bit to say about Trump's confident stance.

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey's rousing speech on race and gender at the Golden Globes Awards ceremony on Monday has led to rampant speculation and calls for her to consider a presidential bid in the United States in 2020.

In 1999, during an interview with chat show host Larry King, he said he would choose her as his running mate if he stood for president.

But will there be another one in the form of Oprah Winfrey?

Her long-time partner, Stedman Graham, was quoted Sunday evening telling The Los Angeles Times, "It's up to the people".

So I think for Americans who are looking for that, she would be an excellent representative of it and for Americans who are looking for something different, she isn't all that different.

In her powerful Golden Globes speech, Oprah spoke about press freedom, racism and sexual abuse before receiving a standing ovation with her closing words about the future. And she had Donald Trump and my family, it was very nice. "I thought, oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough, and now I'm thinking, "oh". I mean, she's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman'. "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run".

Winfrey reflected on watching Sidney Poitier win the award in 1964 as she sat on the floor of her mother's house.

Winfrey, as was the case for Trump before being elected president, has never held public office. Her charisma and intellect displayed throughout her speech proved to be an inspiration to those who may be going through rough times. I'm assuming she'd run as a Democrat, since that's where her worldview and sensibilities best fit.
