Oprah for President 2020?

January 9th, 2018, 7:57 pm

yes? and she's probably richer. And she wasn't born with a golden shovel in her mouth, Self-made woman.

It's time for a change.

She the opposite of trump in all possible ways.

She's a woman, intelligent, rich, black, empathic, informed, nuanced, powerful, trustworthy, ...

roseanne, who has run before, says she'd do a better job than oprah
Roseanne was the nominee of the  Peace and Freedom Party in 2012
there's a DVD about the campaign

Oprah earned $82M last year (according to one site at least) so she may not be keen to give that up

Is having a prior TV or film career  the new normal?

By 2020, it is likely President Putin gets simultaneous terms; 1 Russia and 1 in the US.

yes, you have to be a celebrity to get anywhere these days.

I once made a small fortune by betting on Mtoto at Royal Ascot Gold Cup 1987. Any odds in this case?

$82m is peanuts. Even the honorary Irishman Ed Sheeran (almost as popular as Bono) made $37m last year with 1 guitar. No overhead.

It’s not how good you are, whether you can do the job, or how many will vote for you. It’s how well can the other side exploit any dirt.

So what’s the dirt on Oprah?

the people most upset are likely to be those planning to seek the democratic nomination themselves
