When Seth Meyers joked during his Golden Globes monologue that Oprah Winfrey would “never be president”—in a nod to how his 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner jabs at Donald Trump reportedly spurred him to run for office—he couldn’t have known that the throwaway quip would take on such a life of its own.
But after Winfrey gave a powerful speech accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, Twitter chatter about Winfrey being presidential or might run in 2020 reached a fever pitch—so much so that The Los Angeles Times asked Oprah’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham, about the possibility. “It's up to the people. She would absolutely do it."
So, simple question, would you vote for her if she did run?
