The news of Oprah’s run for president of the U.S. came in the wake of the powerful and widely praised speech she gave while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes. The speech, applauded by critics as being a universal call to action and deeply personal at the same time, managed to bring the crowd at the Beverly Hilton to its feet.

Oprah’s stirring speech also managed to cause an unprecedented media frenzy. “Next president of the U.S.,” “President Winfrey,” and “Oprah 2020” soon became the talk of both social media and the entertainment world. Even, Stedman Graham, Winfrey’s partner of more than thirty years, told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday that her run for the next president of the U.S. “is up to the people.” “She would absolutely do it,” he said.
