Default Oprah for President!

Wow! If she runs and get elected I'm moving to my ranch and throwing out the TV. I'll bury my head and stay in the woods.

She has no chance. Trump said she would make a great running mate when he first revealed he was running and he was ridiculed by the left as not serious for even suggesting her.

Right now I'd beg to differ.

Liberal - All liberal vote for the liberal who's running
Woman (that appears nice) - She would get the woman vote
Rich and everyone knows her - Gets more stupid people's vote


And 3 years before Trump ran I'm sure everyone said he would have no chance.

Never ever underestimate the stupidity of the average citizen.

He did open the doors for anyone who's famous or rich to run with no previous experience in government.

Still can't do it if you're average or poor.

Just think back 10 years ago before Obama. I could have wagered with 500:1 odds on the bet that the 2020 elections would be Oprah versus Trump. I would have made a killing. No one would have thought that as even possible.

I think she would be one of the biggest threats to unseat trump. She would get the women's vote on both sides. She would get every dem vote. She is universally liked and respected by most.

Spot on. I bet she would get 75%+ of all woman voters, regardless of political affiliation. BO got around 55% if I remember.

Assuming she becomes well versed on the issues, I think she would slaughter Trump in a general election. Now that the barrier of a political outsider, especially a celebrity, has been broken, all bets are off. While I disagree with Oprah's politics, her quality of character, social responsibility and charitability towers above Trump.

If she runs, we better hope the DNC stays as corrupt as they were in 2016 and picks another candidate as their establishment choice.

It's a darn shame Trump only puppets to his rich pals and is an extremely dangerous person for our country.

I wish every president would realize and own the idea that they could be the best president we have ever had. Clearly Trump doesn't realize, embrace, or maybe even care that HE could be the best president we ever had if he would shut his gigantic pie hole and throw his cellphone in the trash, and do what's right for the citizens instead of just trying to one up everyone on the face of the planet.

Looking out for the citizens : 2.8 % "Raise" due to simplified and reduced tax obligation for majority of the working class does not appeal to only "Rich pals". What you're spewing is just regurgitated, and should cease. In addition, eliminating the $695/2.5% mandate is looking out for the citizens, and a previous administration that overstepped its bounds.

Yeah, and as deteriorated as this historically prestigious position is becoming ( due to trust factor, world-wide and majority American respect and reverence, consensus building, and occupational 'fitness'), don't be surprised to see names like Caitlyn Jenner, Snoop Dogg, and Kardashians be tossed around as possible candidates. He is like, smart, and a stable genius though. I guess that's why I voted for him.

Unfortunately this is what we get when we, the citizens, make good on the threat of electing "non-politicians". In today's world it takes nearly $1B in one's war chest to stand a chance of making a successful bid for the Presidency. The only "non-politicians" who can put together that kind of scratch are your Trumps & Oprahs.

If we want real people to have a chance at getting elected then we're going to need some serious campaign finance overhauls and reversal of Citizens United. I just don't ever see it happening...too much money to be made on both sides of the aisle. The only path I see to meaningful change in this country is through an Article 5 convention of the states to pass Constitutional amendments that will rein in our Federal Government.
