There's Only 1 Person Who Can Tell Oprah to Run for President
Let’s get real: Oprah Winfrey really only answers to one entity these days: God.
After Oprah's rousing Golden Globes speech many believed/hoped she was planning a run. And who can blame them? During the speech, celebrities were seen on their feet clapping and crying as she promised that “a new day is dawning.”
When Oprah saw the response, apparently she “went into prayer.”
“ ‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’ And I haven’t gotten that.”
She adds that her BFF Gayle King begged her to take the run seriously. “I had people—wealthy, billionaires—calling me up and saying, ‘I can get you a billion dollars. I can run your campaign,'"she reveals. “That many people saying something made me think, ‘Am I at least supposed to look at the question?’ ”
But as of now, she maintains: no dice.
