Ronald Reagan did it. Donald Trump did it. Why not Oprah?
She is a businesswoman, and successful at it. Her worth is at 3.1 billion. That is the same Donald Trump’s 3.1 billion (which is less by some reports, but we are giving him the benefit of the doubt).
She built a highly successful media empire.
Winfrey, who joined 60 Minutes as a contributor this fall, is one of the wealthiest people on the planet. In her lifetime, she's been ranked the richest black American and the first African-American on BusinessWeek's list of the country's top philanthropists.
Oprah is well spoken, performs well on television and remains hugely popular. She has name recognition.
She has her detractors, everyone who achieve fame and fortune does.
So why not? Oprah for President…it is not a new idea but...
It may not be that far-fetched.
