Last night (January 8), Oprah Winfrey did what she does best. She used her wisdom, compassion, and understanding to encourage everyone to fight together against the injustices that women face on a daily basis. The speech she gave as she accepted the Cecil B. Demille award, touched on racism, sexism, and the constant fight for equality.
The highlight of her speech came when she promised the young women watching The Golden Globes a better future.

Winfrey received a standing ovation from the Golden Globes attendees. However, the praise didn’t stop there. Twitter erupted with the hashtag #Oprah2020, arguments about why we shouldn’t have another celebrity president, and the possibility of shrinking Oprah so she can operate in all of our brains.

Oprah is lovely, she isn't qualified to be President though. Can we stop with the cult of personality approach to politics?

According to Bloomberg, when Oprah was asked if she would run for President her response was, “I don’t. I don’t.”
