Oprah for President in 2020? Here’s What Stedman Graham Says About Idea

Winfrey’s rousing Golden Globes acceptance speech has many clamoring for a public office run

Oprah Winfrey’s inspirational speech at Sunday’s Golden Globes was one of the night’s highlights, and had many hoping that it would be a launching pad for a potential presidential run in 2020.

While it seemed like wishful thinking by those caught up in the moment, a Winfrey-fronted ticket may not be as far-fetched as you may think.

Winfrey’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham, wouldn’t rule out a future run. “It’s up to the people,” Graham told the L.A. Times. “She would absolutely do it.”

Eva Longoria, Keith Urban and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson all gushed over Winfrey’s speech as well — and many other Hollywood stars took to Twitter to voice their enthusiasm for the entertainment icon to enter politics.

Following the speech, the #Oprah2020 quickly became a talking point on Twitter.

“A very stable genius,” one user wrote with a photo of Winfrey giving her speech while mocking President Trump’s derided tweets from over the weekend.

People inspired by the speech reacted quickly and were hopeful that the first African-American woman to win the Cecil B. DeMille Award would take her talents to Washington, D.C.
