A CNN Money article reports “The Democratic race for president won’t officially begin until after the 2018 midterms, but many potential candidates are already jostling for position and making trips to Iowa.”
“‘President Winfrey’ was the talk of the entertainment world after Winfrey accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes. And the “Oprah for president?” possibility was a top story on morning TV.”
“The touchstone of her speech was the #MeToo movement. But her hopeful message — ‘A new day is on the horizon’ — could have doubled as a campaign rallying cry.”
“Many liberal-leaning celebrities and viewers certainly heard it that way. And that may have been exactly what Winfrey wanted.”
There’s just one little consideration that Oprah might want to think about: Hillary Clinton is still out there and isn’t about to quit politics unless she’s been prosecuted and locked up. Then again, maybe Oprah knows something that we don’t.
An NBC news article recently dropped a bombshell that “A Trump administration official said Friday that a revived investigation of the Clinton Foundation ‘has been going on for months.'”
“The Hill newspaper reported that FBI agents from Little Rock, Arkansas, recently conducted an interview with a potential witness. The paper said the Justice Department ‘has launched a new inquiry’ into the foundation.”
“But the administration official said the investigation was quietly re-opened several months ago.”
Many Democrats think they could have won with Bernie in 2016 and that Hillary was one of the worst candidates, they could have run with all her criminal baggage. There may be a bi-partisan effort to forcibly retire the Sea Hag by sending her to prison so she can’t run again in 2020.
The bad news for the Dems and Oprah however is that the economy has been doing great under Trump. Burdensome regulations that hold back the expansion of business have been repealed or reduced. Illegal immigration is at a 45 year low as noted here. The stock market just soared past 25,000 and signs of a good economy can be seen across a broad range of indicators as noted here.
The Dems are headed for a disaster in the 2018 mid-term elections, but they seem to think that the dwindling mainstream media will somehow bludgeon Trump into submission for them even though millions of Americans have turned to alternative news media sources while the Democrat base is actually shrinking.
My prediction is the Dems will make a half-hearted effort in 2020 with Elizabeth Warren running, assuming Hillary is in jail by 2019.
