Oprah Winfrey Ponders Running for President in Wake of Donald Trump's Win

Is the Queen of Talk considering running for commander in chief?
Oprah Winfrey shared in a recent interview with Bloomberg Media that she's been contemplating the "possibility" of a presidential run. "Have you ever thought that -- given the popularity that you have -- we haven’t broken the glass ceiling yet for women, [but] that you could actually run for president and be elected?" host David Rubenstein asked the 63-year-old mogul.
Winfrey admitted that she "never considered the question, even the possibility" until President Donald Trump was elected. "I thought, ‘Oh, gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough,’" she explained. "And now I’m thinking, ‘Oh.’”
"It’s clear you don’t need government experience to be elected president,” Rubenstein agreed.
Winfrey isn't the only celebrity that has been asked about getting into politics. During an interview with John Legend, ET inquired as to whether he'd considered running for office.
"I like to sing, I like to write songs and I like to use my position as a singer, as an artist to mobilize people for political change, but I think this is the best way for me to do it," the R&B singer shared. "I don't think I need to run for office to do it. I have a great opportunity being where I am, having the influence that I have, and I don't want to waste it."
