If Oprah is president, who will be Oprah?

"I absolutely don't think her position has changed", King said on "CBS This Morning".

"He floated the idea of having Oprah Winfrey as his vice president, if you remember that - and the media excoriated him", says Hamilton.

King described being in the room as "electrifying" and said producers wanted her to originally keep it to three minutes. "You know, I was up talking to her very late late last night".

When Oprah Winfrey delivered that line at the climax of her thunderous Golden Globes speech, my reaction was the same as everyone else's: Is it my imagination, or does that sound like a well-crafted slogan for a presidential campaign?

When it comes to the Republican respondents, 66 percent said they would support the president, while 12 percent of Democrats and 38 percent of independents would reelect the president.

The Hollywood left and its media utterly swooned into delirium at the prospect of an Oprah Winfrey presidential run after her widely hailed speech at the Golden Globe awards Sunday.

The rumour mill then went into overdrive when CNN reported that sources close to the 63-year-old said she is "actively thinking" about challenging Trump. She would certainly overwhelm the gaggle of charismatically-challenged liberal senators now flirting with a White House run. "I refuse to let a system or a culture or a distorted view of reality tell me that I don't matter", Winfrey told her magazine readers in 2011. "They don't want things given to them that don't come from a pure place", Winfrey told Dear Sugars podcast in an episode where she explained how she could say "no" to musician Stevie Wonder. The brand created hoodies and tees in homage to Winfrey's alleged Presidential bid, and we couldn't feel more patriotic.

Sen. John Scott, a Columbia businessman, said Winfrey matches Trump's qualifications for president: experience as an entertainer, wealth, fame and no experience in holding public office. I think we'd win easily, actually'.

Apart from what one might think of his actual tenure in office, it's far from obvious that Trump is more qualified than Winfrey for the post.

Trump's daughter Ivanka endorsed Oprah's message, if not a political future, in a tweet Monday: "Just saw @Oprah's empowering and inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes".

What she was trying to do in her speech was remind people of the need to stamp out sexual harassment, even assault, by those in power in politics, her industry and elsewhere. She's likely more popular at the party's center than Hillary Clinton, and almost as popular as Bernie Sanders on all but its furthest left fringes.

"I think someone with her interpersonal skills would be ideal to help mend some relationships around the world", she said.
