Oprah Winfrey reconsiders her run for president

(OWN – 2016)(NEW YORK) —  Oprah Winfrey for president?  The media mogul says she’s now rethinking whether or not she could be elected, given President Donald Trump’s victory.

Winfrey supported Hillary Clinton during the election.  But speaking with financier David Rubenstein in December for an interview that premiered this week on his Bloomberg Television show, she said she thinking that maybe she might have a shot, even though she has no government experience.

“Have you ever thought that given the popularity you have, we haven’t broken the glass ceiling yet for women, that you could actually run for president and be elected?” Rubenstein had asked.

“I never considered the question even a possibility,” said Winfrey. “That’s what I thought. I thought, ‘Oh gee, I don’t have the experience. I don’t know enough. I don’t…’ And now I’m thinking, ‘Oh. Oh.’”

Winfrey also spoke about hosting her talk show for 25 years, noting that she feels its main message was that “we really are more alike than we are different.”
