Well, if she did run, she would have a great mentor and advisor in Obama


With that mentorship, her failure would be imminent.

Not the same.

If Winfrey wants to start out as a governor somewhere and show she has political talent and can be trusted with public power, then that would be more like Reagan.


Wow.. did your keyboard burst into flames when you typed "political talent" and "Reagan" in the same sentence .. ?     Wink

In reality, Winfrey is in every way as qualified as Trump to be president and in many ways orders of magnitude more qualified..

You don't think Reagan had political talent? His most ardent critics usually are the first to admit he had such talent. In fact, their argument is usually that political talent is all he had (as opposed to wisdom, for example). I've never heard anyone claim he wasn't good at politics.

That's the obvious problem.

No, I'd stop with equally qualified.

Not in his 1st term. His rating had its height after he got shot, then jobs went bye bye for a bit. His political ideas did not work.

He learned and was taught while in office

Learning is a political talent as well, but that's beside the point.

He repeatedly won elections and changed the political discussion. He, even in his first tem, had an uncanny way of connecting with voters and using that connection to get politicians from the other side to work with him. This is all political talent. Bill Clinton had a lot of that too, though he squandered it on foolishness.

But I'm not really here to defend Reagan. My point is, Oprah is an unknown when it comes to, say, working with a hostile Congress to get legislation passed. Or anything what that deals with running the executive branch of a government or even dealing with millions of people who hate your guts just for being a Democrat and speak against you on 24 hour news channels day in and out.

If she wants to start out somewhere like the House or state government, go for it. But running 1/3 of the national government? Nah. Not ready.

True, but at least she is not braggadocious.  But I don't think she would run.  I think she is too smart for that.


-----------------------------------------------------

Not really. She is not as smart as she is so often portrayed, and in that regard she was much like Barack Obama, .. who was greatly embellished, but, who had very well qualified people around him to help him.

The plus sized and over-rated Oprah would would be easily defeated by Trump, .. that is if she really chose to run against him in 2020.  Grin

How do you know how smart she is?  She speaks very well.  That is more than I can say for the fat ass that lives in the White house now.
