I cannot believe how many hits I keep getting from searches on "Oprah for President", because of this post (one that I'm not particularly proud of).
As a commenter here pointed out to me, there really is an "Oprah for President" website. I think they're serious.
Let me clarify something here: I would not vote for Oprah for President, I do not want her to run, and I do not think she has a snowball's chance of winning.
I wouldn't vote for her because she's pro-choice, she's a leftie, she supported Gore in 2000, she's said things that strike me as just a wee bit flaky on occasion. Example:
"Sometimes I feel that in our carelessness (regarding pollution, global warming, etc.), we are strangling the earth, and like any living creature, the earth is fighting back."Um-hmm.
I mean, Oprah's a very successful talk show host, actress, business owner, and general all-purpose celebrity, but that doesn't mean she's qualified to be president.
Just hope that clears things up.
