Winfreys Globes speech creates buzz about 2020 prez run

Longtime pal Gayle King said Tuesday that Oprah Winfrey is "intrigued" by the idea of running for president, although she said it's still unclear whether the media mogul is seriously considering a run.

Sound familiar? It should. As a bonus, her appearance on the national political scene could well send Trump (further) around the bend.

Twitter is ablaze with chants of "Run, Oprah, run!" To a wide swath of the media-entertainment complex, Winfrey already rules the universe, so ruling America would be a cinch.

The Washington Post quoted Meryl Streep saying that Winfrey "launched a rocket" with the speech.

Just how moved was the crowd inside the Beverly Hilton?

"I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!" "But now she doesn't have a choice".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's India visit from Sunday
He'll be accompanied by Baby Moshe, the young boy who lost his parents in the 2009 terrorist attack at Chabad House. In Mumbai, Netanyahu will meet Jewish community leaders and select members of the Indian business community.

Friends of the celebrity have said she is "actively considering" running against Mr Trump, although she has denied any presidential ambitions. "One of the sources said these conversations date back several months".

Winfrey, in September and October, publicly dismissed the notion of seeking the nation's highest office, though she noted that Trump's victory made her rethink the requirements of the office.

"Oprah is a self-made woman, and she got where she is not by knocking people down, like Trump, but by building other people up", said Stephanie Cutter, who served as President Obama's 2012 deputy campaign manager. We're a lot more leery of non-politician presidential candidates than we were before Trump ran, extending even to any number of businesspeople who would be dramatically more fit for the presidency than he.

Or maybe Ivanka, a special assistant in her father's White House, saw how Winfrey's speech was received and hoped she could score some political points with women by supporting the Time's Up cause. His was a long, hard slog from the warm embrace of the speaker's platform to the cold realities of life as a presidential candidate. When she looks into a camera, it's like she is peering into your soul. "Trump made people work for their job on his".

This involves ignoring voices around her who claim things are "too big of a risk" and instead listening to her inner voice when it tells her she is able to face those risks head on. She had Donald Trump. before politics. her last week and she had Donald Trump and my family.

Trump benefited from his star power to win more free media exposure than his rivals in the Republican primary and was able to run a relatively low-cost campaign.

Member of parliament Mahmoud Sadeghi said included in the 3,700 people who had been arrested , were 40 to 68 students. About 1000 were previously reported to have been detained during nearly a week of demonstrations.

Unfortunately, in politics, unilateral instincts can be a liability. That she upstaged every celebrity that night isn't surprising because few, if any, of the Hollywood celebrities can match her star power.

And here, Winfrey has much more in common with Trump than her admirers might care to admit while caught up in this 2020 fever dream. But Obama did not jump from that stage in Boston to the Oval Office. She would need a crash course in both domestic and foreign affairs.

When serving a country as polarized as the United States, any decision now stands to alienate about 50 per cent of voters.

Speaking to a college graduating class past year, Winfrey reflected that across her career, every successful move has come down to "intentional living" and betting on herself and her own capabilities, rather than listening to others.

On TV, Winfrey was beloved as an inspirational figure.
