Don’t get your hopes up.
A reporter caught the media mogul on her to way theater Sunday and asked if she was preparing to launch a political career.
Oprah’s reply instant.
“I already answered that question honey child, you know that,” she smiled.
Democrats have been raving about Oprah Winfrey ever since she delivered a powerful speech at the Golden Globes ceremony. The party doesn’t have a lot of shining stars and members are struggling to find someone who could reasonably battle President Trump in a couple of years.
It won’t be Oprah.
“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not… And so it’s not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it,” she told a reporter who asked if she thought she stood a chance against Trump.
During another interview, she said: “I do a few things really well. But I don’t want to manage. I don’t want to spend my days and nights creating policy. I want to continue to be involved with stories that allow people to see the best of themselves, to find a higher good.”
Her opinion may have been swayed by polling results which showed her performing poorly as a candidate. Voters like Joe Biden as president a lot more than they like her.
Oprah’s a remarkable woman, but she’s probably not going to be America’s next president. She doesn’t seem that keen on the job herself, and voters don’t trust that she has the experience to run the country.
That doesn’t mean you can’t still buy Oprah 2020 gear.
The Independent writes: “As reports that Oprah Winfrey is considering running for President of the United States in 2020 continue to spread, merchandise for her presidential campaign is already available for purchase.”
