“I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!” she affirmed while accepting the Cecil B De Mil lifetime achievement award.
“And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women … and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.”
In the days that followed #Oprah2020 was trending on Twitter, the world was already campaigning for President Winfrey! Oprah is already a spiritual, philosophic and humanitarian leader to her millions of fans, but is political leadership something she is ready to pursue?
Oprah has just set the record straight on whether she will be running for president in 2020 in a recent interview with Laura Brown, editor-in-chief of our sister publication, InStyle U.S.
"I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it’s not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it.
"Gayle—who knows me as well as I know myself practically—has been calling me regularly and texting me things, like a woman in the airport saying, “When’s Oprah going to run?” So Gayle sends me these things, and then she’ll go, “I know, I know, I know! It wouldn’t be good for you—it would be good for everyone else.” I met with someone the other day who said that they would help me with a campaign. That’s not for me,” she revealed to InStyle.
