Oprah thinks she might run for President
Mon Jan 8, 2018 8:39am

What can't this rich oreo cookie do? She built her wealth off white women ... that's all that were in her audiences.

What will she have to offer on her platform?

    • She doesn't have the energy. (nm)jb, Tue Jan 9 7:16am
    • A wealthy and successful business tycoon...Sprout, Mon Jan 8 9:32am

            there are precious few *legal* requirements to run for the presidency. If memory serves (and if things haven't changed) they are: native born American citizen, minimum age of 35, and having lived in... more

                    "I remember Howard Stern did a 'man on the street' type thing . . . ." funny, but sad. The way I look at it, start with the politicians and their requirements to seek office. And then the voters... more

                      IMO the idea of doing one ONLY after the other is done is a common political excuse to never do the other. And usually results in NEITHER getting done, which may also be a goal.. Let's take border... more

                        and fix everything that needs to be fixed simultaneously too. The problem is that the public, and Washington itself, won't like the changes that we and/or I am suggesting and will bulk at them. So... more
