Oprah 2020? Celebrities want it, fans want it, but does the TV legend want it?
Winfrey’s rousing speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday led to calls for the mogul to run for president. She’s gone on on record before saying she’ll never run for public office, but best friend Gayle King says that the new chatter is very appealing.
“I do think she’s intrigued by the idea,” said co-host on her “CBS Morning Show. “I also know that after years of watching the ‘Oprah’ show, you always have the right to change your mind. I don’t think at this point she’s actually considering it.”
However, King was quick to clarify that Winfrey has yet to change her mind. “She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don’t think she’s actively considering it at this time.”
