Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 15, 2018

Oprah Winfrey has made a career out of listening, and since her speech at the Golden Globes last month, she's heard a rumbling. But in an interview with 60 Minutes Overtime, she makes it clear -- she is not running for president. "I am actually humbled by the fact that people think that I could be a leader of the free world, but it's just not in my spirit," she tells 60 Minutes Overtime correspondent Ann Silvio in the video above. "It's not in my DNA."

Good. Let the dems be the party of capable adults. Let repubs have the actors, reality stars, and proud know-nothings.

Dems trying to copy repub tactics has gotten us where we are today.

Let repubs be the party of big money and corruption. Bernie proved if the people really believe you'll fight for them, they'll fund you.

Good, agreed. I'd like to see her appointed Amb to the Confederate States, however.

Haven't you noticed? Voters don't care about anything in a president's ethical or intellectual background any more.

She could always pretend to be christian like trump does.

Oprah was never running for president. That was just tumors started by her fans.

But. Has anyone checked in with Kanye?

Seriously? Dems and Reps fight against everything the other does but now Dems have resorted to saying they are failing because they are doing what Reps do. Yet every headline in all Liberal media is that the Dems are perfect and the Reps aren't. Hmmmm, I guess that kind of real logic escapes many of that party.

While I think she would probably be good at certain aspects of the job, I'm guessing her lawyers informed her of exactly what disclosures she would have to make if she decided to actually run. Better to sit on the sidelines and be the power behind the thrown than loose the kingdom.

I believe if God speaks to her that is a sign of mental illness according to Joy Behar. But that probably only applies to Mike Pence.
