After Oprah's marvellous speech at the Golden Globes this past Sunday, rumors of her running for President hit the internet. Her speech sparked a twitter spree of " what if's" and a Boondocks episode was used to help those claims. But sadly Oprah will NOT  be a future Presidental candidate. A source super close to her, Gayle King says Oprah has no plans to run even though she is intrigued by the idea.  

“I absolutely don’t think her position has changed, I don’t,” King, 63, said of Winfrey, who has repeatedly denied a desire to run for office and told CBS This Morning in Oct. 2017, “There will be no running for office of any kind for me.”

“I was up talking to her very late last night. I do think she is intrigued by the idea, I do think that,” King added Tuesday. “I also know that after years of watching The Oprah Winfrey Show, you always have the right to change your mind. I don’t think at this point she’s actually considering it.”

So maybe, hopefully by the time 2020 comes around Oprah will change her mind.
