Oprah at the Golden Globes: Is she running for president? She should!

This image released by NBC shows Oprah Winfrey accepting the Cecil B. De Mille Award at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills Calif. on Sunday Jan. 7 2018 Gayle King: Oprah isn't running for president, except if she is

A poll released Wednesday found Winfrey with a significant advantage over President Donald Trump in a head-to-head matchup.

"I won't lie and say it's been easy".

Trump said "Oprah will be lots of fun", adding that he didn't think she would actually run.

"I know her very well", he said, before adding: "I don't think she's going to run".

The presidential buzz follows Winfrey's impassioned call for "a brighter morning even in our darkest nights" at the Golden Globes on Sunday night in a speech that left some viewers contemplating the idea of the Democratic Party embracing a celebrity candidate of its own to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

Winfrey herself has previously denied that she would run for office, and a source close to her said this week she had no intention of entering presidential politics in 2020.

Late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel said at a press conference Monday that he thought Winfrey's speech was "preaching to the choir" with her Hollywood audience. That's why Trump's Twitter antics damage him, and it's why Oprah's delivery of an overblown speech in front of her cronies in Los Angeles could launch her.

Ford to launch diesel in 2018 F-150
When it goes on sale in the spring, the diesel 2018 Ford F-150 will cost up to $4,000 more than a conventional gas-powered model. And there's talk of a new diesel power plant coming from Ram at the upcoming North American International Auto Show.

Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump praised Winfrey for supporting the #MeToo movement in a tweet Monday night but soon came under scathing criticism.

In November, she told a Tokyo summit that sexual harassment of women should "never be tolerated". "But that would be something she would have to determine and lay out if she made a decision to run". I do think she is intrigued by the idea, I do think that.

"I think one of the arguments for Oprah is 45", Pelosi said, referring to Trump in shorthand for the 45th president.

She said that because of that - as well as what she learned from the years she spent interviewing people from all walks of life, who wanted validation that they had been heard - she has "become a person of compassion [and] a person of understanding". If she does, she'll have the chance to make her best argument for why she should be president. "I mean, she's popular, she's brilliant, she's a wonderful woman", Trump told CNN's Larry King.

Oprah Winfrey for president was something of a running theme throughout the Golden Globes on Sunday, beginning with Seth Meyers' opening monologue.

Still, if it's possible for a former reality TV star with zero political experience to become president of the United States, surely it's possible for Oprah to change her mind. "Is she a successful individual?"
