According to CNN:
According to two of Winfrey’s close friends who requested anonymity to speak freely, Winfrey is “actively thinking” about running for president in 2020.
Some of Winfrey’s confidants have been privately urging her to run, the sources said.
One of the sources said these conversations date back several months. The person emphasized that Winfrey has not made up her mind about running.
Okay, first of all, what does “actively thinking” mean? As opposed to passively thinking? As in, “Yes, I’ve been passively thinking about that for some time now.”
Whatever. Don’t laugh. I think we’ve learned that in politics, anything can happen now.
Here is the speech that Oprah made last night at the Golden Globe awards that has helped spur all the talk. Here she speaks at this festival of hypocrisy in which an industry that has lectured us about our morals for years, and yet tolerated rampant abuse of women, pats itself on the back.
