Oprah for President?

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

So, okay, Oprah Winfrey is the first black woman to win the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes, held last Sunday, and that is huge! As in it is a huge, huge, huge achievement.

Oprah is beyond iconic. She is a life force that defies definition. Her spirit is all encompassing and her path breaking work has inspired millions to change their lives.

But to suddenly find her being touted as the next President of the United States of America is a bit disconcerting. Is America so desperate for change that they are turning to showbiz icons? Not that Oprah would be the first. Ronald Reagan blazed a trail to the White House too.

But somehow it seems that the Presidency would not sit right on Oprah. She is unconventional and outspoken. She lives from a pure place within her soul and changes tracks the minute she feels that her authenticity and integrity are being compromised. Politics demands the exact opposite. It requires that you kill your soul, authenticity and integrity and do not what’s right but what is necessary to stay in power, whether it is right or wrong is immaterial — and most often it’s the latter.

That would be a terrible tragedy for someone like Oprah who is a beacon of light to the world. There can be many who can be future Presidents of the US. But only Oprah can be Oprah Winfrey. To your Diarist’s mind, being Oprah is larger than being the US President. Attagirl!
