    Default Oprah Winfrey to be the next President of the United states

    Headline in Telegraph 08 01 2018:

    Oprah for President? Broadcaster 'would absolutely do it' after barnstorming Golden Globes speech

    The article goes on to say:

    Oprah Winfrey is the latest celebrity to receive support for a run for US President after inspiring thousands with her acceptance speech for the Cecil B DeMille award at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
    So many were impressed by Winfrey's speech that calls for her to run for president started to be posted on social media.

    By the time Winfrey had collected her award, the notion that she could follow Trump as a TV celebrity-turned-politician, was being discussed. The Los Angeles Times reports that Winfrey's long-term partner Stedman Graham, said that "It's up to the people. She would absolutely do it."

    Jays, that would drive them nuts altogether.
    The truth of an idea is not a stagnant property inherent in it. Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.

    Didn't you do a thread before predicting that Hilary Clinton would be the next POTUSA a while before the actual election? I can easily see Orpah Winfrey standing for the Democrats.

    What qualifications does she have other than being a tv presenter.

    It is the failure of politics which enables people who are not politicians, including Donald Trump, to become electable.

    Politicians need to take back politics if they can.
    Politics.ie moderators should moderate instead.

    Entirely possible , ticks all the identity PC boxes for the Democrats , they would have her in a heartbeat. Not sure how well she would go in the rust belt states though.
