Oprah Winfrey is seriously considering running for president in the next election, two of her associates told CNN. The two sources are saying that many have implored the talk show superstar to run for months, but Oprah has not yet made a decision regarding the matter.
The two sources spoke with CNN amid the warm reception to Oprah’s speech last night (Sunday) at the Golden Globes after she won the Cecil B. Demille award. During her speech, Oprah acknowledged the #MeToo movement and human rights activities with the hopeful message that “a new day is on the horizon.”
The speech not only brought the crowd to its feet, but also received rave reviews, while many wondered this morning if this was an unofficial launch of a presidential campaign. “It’s up to the people,” Oprah’s longtime partner, Sedman Graham, said when asked about the matter. “She would absolutely do it.”
