Oprah Winfrey, to her credit – and, I am sure, her sense of well-being – has put the final kibosh on any thoughts that she might seek the Democrat nomination for President in 2020 and, assuming he runs again, challenge Donald Trump.
Says Ms. Winfrey:
“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it’s not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it.”
Smart move. Very smart move.
-Donald Trump, the billionaire currently at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, has an insatiable appetite for publicity and for combat with anyone and everyone. Presidential politics is right in his wheelhouse.
-Oprah Winfrey is a self-made billionaire who is not looking for still more publicity and is not interested to be in perpetual combat mode. She is far more comfortable with promoting the values she cherishes and engaging in her numerous philanthropies.
They both made the right choice.
