The internet went wild with anticipation after Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes, sure that she would run for President in 2020. People gossiped, begged, pleaded, demanded – did whatever they thought it would take so that it would be so. But in a recent interview with InStyle, Oprah shut down the rumors with a simple, “That’s not for me.”
“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not,” she said in her interview. “And so [the Presidency] is not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it.”
Oprah has spent time with many presidents, particularly President Obama. She has seen to sort of person that can be the leader of the free world and what is required of a person in that position. Quite frankly, I don’t blame her for not wanting to go for it, especially when the alternative is hanging out with Ellen and enjoying life.
