Oprah To Be America’s Next President?

Written by Salina Jivani

She’s an icon, a powerhouse and an idol. A humanitarian who’s both charitable and ambitious, Oprah Winfrey is the epitome of a great woman and a born leader. It’s no wonder she’s an inspiration to women around the world. Plus, her charm and popularity don’t seem to weaken or fizzle with age.

With the culmination of the 2016 Presidential election that began the term of President Donald Trump, Ms. Winfrey has already been thrust under the spotlight multiple times as Americans seek out and speculate about who could take the presidential reign during the country’s next election in 2020 .

And with her achievements tucked firmly under her toes and the respect she’s garnered from people everywhere, it’s no surprise Ms. Winfrey’s name continues to pop up time and time again in a political context. People love her, and they want to see more of her in a role that will impact them as Americans.

So, is Ms. Winfrey a contender for the next campaign? Does she have any political ambitions, and is there a chance we might find ourselves witnessing the country’s first-ever female, African American president in the next election?

Or is it all speculation? High hopes?

For the most part, Ms. Winfrey has steered clear of politics, only stepping in to support former president Barrack Obama when it seemed he might lose to his opponent Hillary Clinton in the 2008 elections, but perhaps that show of support is what has her fans rooting for her to take a larger role in the political arena.

Oprah Winfrey was recently asked point blank her plans to run for presidency in a recent interview where she talked about a woman who confronted her in a public bathroom about not doing enough to show her support toward democrat Hillary Clinton.

The answer? Well, if you’re a big Oprah fan, you’ll be disappointed to know this flamboyant and well-respected icon has politely declined running for office. Her exact response?

“I never considered the question, even a possibility. I thought, ‘Oh gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough.’”

Although we may have missed our opportunity with Ms. Winfrey, she still continues to top the list of possible contenders for 2020. But even if she does stay true to her word, we can look forward to other possible candidates in Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and even former First Lady Michelle Obama.

Although some might argue none will be nearly as real, compassionate or fun as Ms. Winfrey!
