NBC, Hollywood and some liberals already have Oprah Winfrey elected President in their heads, but Oprah might already be feeling some reservations after getting a taste of what it’s like to stick your neck out in the political arena. Like the photos at this link that were already circulating before the final credits even ran at the Golden Globes.
I have always warned potential candidates that they’d better not go into politics if they don’t like the sight of their own blood. Oprah has always struck me as a nice lady, and I have no beef with her personally. But you can’t run for President on likability alone. The job requires taking controversial political stands and having everything you’ve ever said in your life dug up and thrown back at you. In her case, that will include, but not be limited to: endorsing gun control, legalizing 12 million illegal immigrants, selling Obama to Americans as “the One,” her unmarried relationship with Stedman Graham, introducing Dr. Oz as a medical expert we can trust, endorsing the books “The Secret” and “A Million Little Pieces,” and giving a platform to anti-vaccination campaigners and other dangerous health quackery, to name but a few.
Does she really want to spend months on the grueling campaign trail, answering questions about all that, when she could be enjoying all her money and hanging out only with people who worship her? On the other hand, if we elect her, maybe we’ll all get a free car. That does sound like a Democratic platform plank that Bernie Sanders could endorse.
