Gayle King on Oprah White House bid: 'I do think she's intrigued'

A moment from the 2018 Golden Globes

"I don't think at this point she is actually considering it" said Winfrey's best friend Gayle King, who is also a television personality.

Ms King said a comment to the Los Angeles Times by Ms Winfrey's partner, Mr Stedman Graham, was a result of a misinterpretation of a reporter's question. "She would absolutely do it". She was just walking home from the church service she'd attended in Abbeville, Alabama, when she was abducted by six armed white men, raped, and left blindfolded by the side of the road coming home from church.

Shapiro on 2020 Dem Race: Can You Imagine Oprah Losing to Biden? But today, who can rule it out? What she did last night was great. And she could win.

I admit to having mixed feelings about the prospect.

During a 2008 rally for the candidate, Winfrey said she was "not here for partisan beliefs" and that over the years, she'd voted for as many Republicans as she had Democrats. I support that as I think everyone should and I think Oprah has a tremendous capacity for human empathy.

"There is money around for Oprah, Michelle Obama and George Clooney - but the odds suggest The Donald is going to be hard to beat", said Rupert Adams, spokesman for global betting chain William Hill.

Winfrey was raised in poverty by a single mother and went on to host the top-rated talk show "The Oprah Winfrey Show" for 25 years before ending it in 2011. It was "Oprah on a soapbox" - bold and full of vigor. "#United." Social media, including celebrities, quickly took to her mentions, reminding her that her father, Donald Trump is accused of harassment by sixteen women. Their time is up. "I thought, "Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.' And now I'm thinking, 'Oh".

In the meantime, as Oprah promised, "a new day is on the horizon" - and it's up to all of us to make sure it dawns. And I confess that I had a lump in my throat.

It is not the first time that Winfrey's name has been associated with a White House.

She endorsed Clinton in 2016.

"I don't, I don't", she reportedly said backstage at the Globes when asked if she planned to run.

Response from the Hollywood luminaries who witnessed the speech firsthand inside the Beverly Hilton ballroom was little short of rapturous.

Winfrey has expressed pro-gun control views, is pro-LGBT rights, and has come out in favor of providing a path to citizenship for the millions of undocumented Americans protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. It offered hope - a commodity that has been in desperately short supply.

But now with newly-fueled rumors of a possible Winfrey run for the presidency in 2020, her views are receiving renewed attention. The life of a billionaire media mogul is much more pleasant than the life of a president. But we should also be mindful that many people have underestimated Winfrey during the course of her long career.
