But to be so inclined to resort to talk show hosts after what we're experiencing under a reality show star, does not speak well to how we regard our public service offices.

OPRAH Winfrey would comfortably beat Donald Trump in a presidential election, a poll has suggested.

Oprah Winfrey drew a lot of praise and inspiration from numerous people after a lengthy speech during the Golden Globes event this year.

"So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon", Winfrey said.

In a television interview early a year ago, Winfrey indicated that Trump's election had changed her mind about whether she lacked experience for America's highest office. Winfrey has her own studio, a TV channel and a magazine.

"Listen, Oprah has got a very nice life".

The President will have surprised few observers with his predicted outcome of any future White House race against Ms Winfrey.

The indications are mixed but what happens if she does?

Winfrey's delivery wasn't the soft, enfolding, personal empathy of "Oprah on the couch". "It's up to the people", Graham said. "And now I'm thinking, 'Oh!"

Winfrey is following some of the conventions adopted by career politicians, particularly the idea that some of her confidants have been urging her to run.

LINDA MOTTRAM: So what sort of a candidate would she be in terms of, I guess, campaigning but also in policy terms? Good for her for focusing on that. And yes, we believe that she might just win against Trump if the opportunity arises.

Say what you will about Donald Trump, but at least voters elected him for his positions, not his cuddly likability. While speaking she made all of us feel heard. Her major impact to date was her May 2007 endorsement of candidate Barack Obama - at a time when Hillary Clinton was the odds-on favorite to win the Democratic nomination.

So why should Oprah give the presidency a shot?

Barack Obama's former campaign manager Jim Messina also said that Oprah would be the flawless candidate for 2020. They're the women whose names we'll never know. 'I'd love to have Oprah.
