America’s Interest With Oprah 2020
After Oprah’s empowering Golden Globes speech, the idea of Oprah 2020 began to spread, leaving some to wonder if fame is now becoming a prerequisite for political office. Steven White, a Political Science Professor in the Maxwell School, discussed this, and how America views Oprah, for the Christian Science Monitor.
“There’s a possibility that a lot of people view the president as being the spokesperson for the country, and what it stands for and values,” he said. “They see Oprah as able to espouse a world view that inspires them.”
