Then you shouldn't have a problem with a billionaire real estate mogul as opposed to a tv talk show host. BTW Macleans is a left wing propaganda rag, the amount of fluff they print trying to make Canada's village idiot look good is repugnant.

This thread already exists, though you may not know it because threads here tend to have rhetorical non-descript headlines

As for news...they do. They report on multiple things, the castanet article is specifically posted on the world news section...

Famous people have always been elected President. It's just that they used to be generals. Name recognition goes a long way. She's smart, empathetic and driven. She has a vast network of resources. She built herself into a billionaire from nothing. No loans from Daddy and did it as a black woman to boot. Oprah's a woman who gets stuff done. She is totally worthy to run for office.

She makes a speech at the awards show and all of a sudden she is imminently qualified to be the President of the USA. No wonder that country is in such a governance mess.

I like Oprah, and I'm sure that she's a warm and kind person. Maybe she knew and didn't say anything, but would you or I? It's hard to say without living it. One thing that is true is that it takes extraordinary bravery to stand up to famous people who can influence how everyone reacts to you blowing the whistle. Another is that all this condemnation after the fact is not bravery... https://www.dailywire.com/news/25502/walsh-matt-walsh

Since we skipped over a white female presidentette, that now makes it time for a black female presidentette.
I’d rather vote for Jessica Simpson and the Dukes of Hazzard.

Yes, being a billionaire TV star doesn't qualify you for president, but being an intelligent, dignified, capable leader, with a seeming modicum of humility, a strong work ethic and actual business credentials might just. That said, I would prefer that Oprah not run, nor become president, but still I doubt she'd be worse than all but maybe 2 of the last 10 presidents.

She won't do it.
There's near zero control on your image when your president, nasty stuff happens where you can't win.
She'll go from a pretty favorable % for Oprah now, to near 50% during elections, to sometimes where it seems not even Dems will have her back.
Don't think having a hand in sending soldiers into combat, or resulting deaths of all ages being consistent with the Oprah brand.

Oprah Winfrey is "actively thinking" about running for president, two of her close friends told CNN Monday.

Indeed. And to think the incumbent got elected with even less qualifications. Oprah started from nothing and built an empire. Trump started with an empire, and like his presidency, he is struggling to keep it together. God help America
research shows right-wingers tend to be less intelligent than left-wingers, and people with low
childhood intelligence that tend to grow up to be conservative with racist and homophobic views

Ivanka Trump:
“Just saw Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes,” she said on her father’s favorite social media platform. “Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TimesUp.”


Good job Ivanka!
