An older article but it still stands. I would hope that folks more likely to espouse science and reason - hiya atheists! - wouldn't even entertain the notion.

I do not think Oprah has the right background. However, she is more aware of issues than Trump, and unlike Trump, she did not inherit a business worth millions, but is actually is a self made person.

@atheist I think it is doubtful that Oprah would actually run for office. However my sister pointed out to me a point I missed, which is that Oprah, unlike Trump is willing to learn and is very adept at learning, which would be a MAJOR improvement over Trump who thinks he already knows all he needs to.

@atheist No she isn't. Although early in her career, in some interviews she seemed at times to be naive in some things, she has made an effort to learn more and never stopped learning, and as her career progressed yiu see her appearing more and more informed and knowledgeable.

I have to admit though, that I'd be really laughing if a black woman who was born into poverty fixed the problems the white business man who was born into wealth left behind. (Unfortunately, I don't think we have seen the worst Trump Trump disasters yet)

I think we've had enough with elected officials who have no idea what they are doing. No more entertainment business people for president. It doesn't work. The first was bad the second is horrible. I like Oprah, but she's a tad flaky and has no background to deal with government. It's not entertainment, it is the very opposite of entertainment. Elizabeth Warren yes, but oh god no to Oprah.

I can think of a lot worse tickets. I would support the combination.

I've seen some legitimate polls putting Bernie Sanders as the most popular politician. I'm sticking with him. If he doesn't run, take Warren in a heartbeat.

Me, too - said with enthusiasm! In fact, I'd love a Sanders/Warren ticket.

I love Bernie, I'd vote for him and who ever ran with him. I will work for his campaign again as well.

Oprah should lead the ticket. Rather see someone younger as VP on ticket.

While I am not too thrilled about the idea of more TV celebrities running for the highest post in the country, one has to wonder if our nation has changed to the extent that we must seriously consider it. At least with Oprah, we are talking about a decent human being.

I'm still floored by the fact that Trump, a pathetic excuse for a human, actually won. Maybe we have to fight fire with fire.

I like Kamala Harris and Sherrod Brown. I don't think Warren will do it. Oprah needs to start with the Senate, and then I could see it someday. Not against Trump in 2020. Although I would like to see them debate.

This fascination with celebrity is what got us into this mess. What makes Oprah Winfrey qualified, other than a billionaire and a TV star? Who's next?
A Kardashian?

OMG, that would be a disaster. I still haven't figured out who the Kardashians are, why they are famous or infamous, and why I should care about them. It has been explained more than once, but I just don't care so I just can't remember. They are plastic people, not real and not worth my time.

@HippieChick58 they are that modern phenom, famous for being famous. Seems like Paris Hilton was the start of this. But now, people who have never even been elected county dog catcher can use their money and fame for top offices. Jeez, what do we look like to the rest of the world?

@Benmonk and, someone mentioned that "The Rock", former wrestler and movie star was also considering a run. We are literally one misguided election away from Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho (President, former wrestler in "Idiocracy"!

@Benmonk Dwayne Johnson is actually an all around decent guy. I don't think he's qualified for the job but Jesse Ventura has political experience and I'd vote for The Rock before Jesse :0

Congressman Joe Kennedy III anyone? It would be great if Elizabeth Warren would run, but I don't think she wants to.

LizBeth Level 6 Jan 8, 2018

I would definitely include him in my Kamala Harris and Sherrod Brown possibilities.

No More Celebrities!!! I will take my chances on a career civil servant that happened to be a politician too. Now having said that. I will stay firmed in my requirement of having served in a Military branch... No DD-214... Not getting my vote. My vote... my requirement. That's just to get the foot in the door of my possibilities. No More Celebrities!!!

So Tulsi Gabbard...? lol

Warren? Maybe.
Oprah? Oh hell no!

No. All that Democrats have to do if they want to start winning elections is listen to the people who are willing to work with them (progressives, Democratic socialists, Independents, etc). It's not a popularity contest and we're about to have a repeat of 2016 if people seriously think that Oprah Winfrey is the Dems best option.

I am sure there is a portion of the democratic party that simply wants revenge and will love nothing more than give the presidency to the most outrageous candidate on their ranks that will just annoy the republicans. Revenge is such a blindfold!!!!

Plus look at all the coo coo things Oprah believes.

Hell, I think she buys what Deepak Chopra is selling.

There are definitely better options than Oprah. Kamala Harris and Sherrod Brown could do it with Oprah's money though. smile001.gif

It IS a popularity contest....
