Oafra could definitely win.

Her endorsement of Obama was influential to a certain demographic. Shed likely pull more women and blacks to the polls than any candidate in history.

Of course it would be a disaster, but wed still be required to celebrate her presidency lest we be labeled racist and/or sexist.

Oprah for president? Hell no. Oprah for governor of Chicago? Certainly. 

Oprah for Governor of Chicago.... hmmm...   someone else please point out what's wrong with this ...


Using that "who's been irritating me less" criteria seven months in.... still not Trump and his fans. I grew up with these people. I understand them. They actually seem normal, surprising as it may seem to you. These liberals on the other hand: cop bashing, white shaming, trannie loving, kneeling during the national anthem. Fock them. They're the ones that really freak me out and it's not even close to being close. ~me

I dont know if shes good enough at Twitter to be an effective leader.

 

 

See...and thats what society is now.  What are the Kardashians doing? What's happening on Twitter?  Did you hear Ginger married Mary Anne? Did you hear who Bieber is dating?  Did you hear about the new app?  That's what is driving people.  That's what people do.  Instead of working and making money.  They worry about celebs.  And that is why Katy Perry, Oprah or Ellen or that type will end up president one day.

He was showing them how to soap up, was one. He was a "tickle monster," was another.Let's hope the judge sends Sandusky away for the rest of his days, into the general population at a federal prison, not a protected one.Let's see how the tickle monster goes over with those guys." ~Rick Reilly, ESPN.COM

Could be. I thought when the national dialogue was about cumstained dresses and shoving a cigar inside an intern we had reached our low, but we rebounded nicely with the next two guys. Eye roll.

Meh. At least Oprah is a real billionaire and a philanthropist. We would be much better off with her than the Dotard. Katy Perry or Ellen would be a toss-up.

Wasn't OK for Obama either. You should have seen the hacks going bananas. FFT was birther central. Apparently you weren't around, even though you've been a member since 2005.

IIRC, Oprah's career began as a failed newscaster; she couldn't handle reporting sad news and would break down into a sobbing mess.  So she tried the talk show route and found that much more to her personality.  The rest is history.

 

While she absolutely has the personality to BECOME president, I don't think she has the personality to BE president.  

 

Then again, she runs a billion dollar empire now so maybe she has toughened up.  :dunno:

:thumbsup:

there's a quote from Newt Gingrich at at Press Corps. dinner 10 or so years ago... and he jokes that our elections have become some combination of American Idol, The Bachelor, and Who's Smarter Than a 5th Grader.

Newt made the observation that the best "candidate" to run for President is no longer the best person to "be" President.

And it's a fact - the qualifications needed to win an election are completely different than the qualifications needed to be the leader of the free world.

I would argue just the opposite. Apparently a crapload of celebrities are saying what the ######? You mean you don't have to be qualified at all to become president? Okay ###### it I'm in!

At this point, I'm pretty sure I vote for anybody who doesn't speak of themselves in the third person.

I've been saying that I think the Dems trot out a black woman next time (Kamala Harris, maybe...or Oprah I suppose).  Its not about qualifications or platform anymore...its a Ping-Pong match with each side getting further and further away from the center every day. 

 

Pretty much all politicians are focking garbage and don't care one iota about the people they are supposed to represent.

mobb just won this thread with his Trump / Oprah video.

 

Trump, "I'd pick Oprah as my V.P., she's got a lot going on... she's a lot like me... and she'd be great at it".

 

And see - Turmp knows that the "it" she'd be great at is the candidate/election/hoopla/popularity contest part... and the 4 years after that don't really matter - you were chosen because you can win an election, not because you can run a country.

I don't disagree the dems do it, however I think if they do, the candidate fails.  Now, Oprah definitely changes that a bit.   But I still don't see a woman winning yet, and definitely not a black woman. Not in this country yet.

She wasn't more relevant when she was on television? I just mean she's hardly ever in the spotlight at this point.

I think the Democrats are going to be sorely disappointed if they think they will catch lightning in a bottle the way the Republicans did with Trump.

The democrats are dumb....They seriously thought Hillary would be the lightning in the bottle they needed and they completely messed that up.  They have no clue who to run in 2020 yet and Oprah just got popular.  I almost guarantee the DNC has already contacted her to see if shes interested.  She'd be a fool to do it, but shes being asked as we speak.

We know Oprah ain't running for anything except maybe dinner.


You know we're sitting on four million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder. Makes you feel good, doesn't it?
