Will Oprah Run For President?

People Really Want Oprah to Run For President After Her Inspiring Golden Globes Speech

Oprah Winfrey for president! During the Golden Globes on Sunday night, host Seth Meyers joked that the Hollywood icon should run for office during his opening monologue, and it didn't take long for people to get on board. After giving the best speech of the night for her Cecil B. DeMille award, the hashtag #Oprah2020 quickly started trending on Twitter. So is Oprah really heading to the White House? Her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, certainly supports the idea. "It's up to the people," he told the Los Angeles Times. "She would absolutely do it."

She might have some competition, though. Last year, Dwayne Johnson admitted that he was seriously considering running for office — although, we have a feeling he might settle for Vice President with Oprah Winfrey on the ticket.
