    It was a great speech - for those that missed it.

    Wish i could stop it for you ole Pal.

    Think she'd be a huge improvement on the more recent efforts though.

    In her interviews some years back she seemed to relate to general social community needs. Anyhow who knows what's coming out of the bag.

    I reckon if she ran for president she would win. A lot of Americans like her and she is very popular. Besides all that we have seen other famous TV/Movie people get before in a few countries so it could be quite probable.

    A comment on FB was:

    The left must be crazy to think that a billionaire TV star with no political experience can win..

    That's why she would win.

    If TV celebs, with no political experience, can be accepted as presidential nominees, why not get Judge Judy to run?

    My world would have already stopped by the time 2020 hindsight kicks in over there.

    It's one thing to hand out gifts every week to popularise your TV show.

    It's another whole thing to be doing it with taxpayers' money.

    I'd be surprised if she ran. You should see the republican the shi7 hurling machine that went into overdrive on FB the moment they suspected she was a candidate. Unbelievable.
    Seriously why would anyone want to run, it's gotta be the worst job on earth.

    What is it with the Left and virtue-signalling? They live for it.

    We've seen how symbolic Presidents work out, with B.Obama widely regarded as one of the worst ever, especially in the US.

    But I think Oprah is too canny to climb down into the swamp and get her feet wet. I mean, why would you? Worth $3 Bill, and regarded with universal acclaim, even Trump praises her.

    Oprah was basically the one that put Obama in office.
    It seems there is more power outside the oval office than in it!

    He is only regarded as the worst by those who actually support the worst president in history and cannot come to terms with the fact they have elected an infantile, crass, self-centred moron.

    If you give companies a tax cut, of course it will be reflected in the SP500 as it immediately goes to the bottom line. But that doesn't mean the the tax cut is good, just that it is beneficial to a certain group.

    Trumps approval rating vs Obama is a far better indicator of who is regarded as the better president as it is more broadly based that a single economic indicator. We know where Trump stands in that comparison.

    In that case The Sp500 agrees Obama was better than Trump by 1% in the same timeframe.

    Trump would be "dumbest president" in history. I don't know about the worst.

    Trump is a lot of things, nothing useful for running the US, giving away $1.5 Til of the tax payers money to the ultra wealthy / corporations and getting the middle and lower classes in the US pay for it has to be the work of a criminal genius.

    The idea of Oprah becoming president just shows the craziness of US politics.
