Up until recently, the talk of OPRAH WINFREY running for president was lumped in with other celebrities, like The Rock, Kanye West, and Mark Cuban . . . basically, it’s a fun story, but it AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN. But some people think Sunday was a bit of a watershed moment . . . when she delivered that stirring, empowering speech at the Golden Globes. And hashtags like ‘#Oprah2020’ began trending heavily on social media.

So, is it actually possible that she would run? It’s hard to say . . . but for the first time, Oprah isn’t shutting down the talk. At least not yet. When “Bloomberg” asked her backstage if she had any plans to run, she said, “I don’t. I don’t.”
But then, the “L.A. Times” asked her if she’d think about it, and she said, “Okay.” And yesterday CNN said that two anonymous “close friends” of Oprah’s claim she’s, “actively thinking” about it. One of them thinks she’s been considering it for several months.
Oprah’s longtime partner Stedman Graham threw some fuel on the fire, too. He was asked about it, and he said, “It’s up to the people. She would absolutely do it.”
