    Would you vote for Oprah if she run for President in 2012?

    B well known,  love by so many American, very knowledeable on lot of issues
    would you vote for her base on that..

    No. Although she is a very loving and generous person I feel she lacks the ability to navigate the political waters.

    One reason many successful people fail as politicans is because unlike a business where one person gets to call the shots as though they were the 10 commandments....etc A politician is forced to compromise over and over again just to get some of what she/he wants in return.

    There will always be an opposition party whose sole responsibility is to tear you down on a daily basis. That's just comes with the territory. Awhile back I wrote a hub stating that "political gridlock" is the American way. http://hubpages.com/hub/politicalgridlockiswhatwewant
    I don't believe Oprah could stand that type of heat. Thankfully she knows what her strengths are.

    I'm not american, so I can't vote for her.
    But, she's very popular person, and that is big plus for elections. She would win them surely. But politics, and show business ain't same game.
    Anyway good question.

    Sorry Oprah, you are a generous, loving, caring person. Just not President material

    No, she is a wonderful entertainer, but that does not make her a good presidential candidate.

    No! No! No!!! Not in a million years!!!! She supported Obama. That's enough to make me question her overall judgment.

    no.  No experience in the political world.  I think we know what happens when we elect a person who does not understand the global political arena.

    no, I have no evidence that she is able to govern a country and tackle the many problems facing the USA

    My answer would depend on who her opponent was. If she were running against Sarah Palin and/or Glenn Beck or Donald Trump I sure would vote for Oprah. However, she's not qualified for the Presidency although she's a bright and successful woman.

    She is very successful but seems too emotional to be President, in my opinion.

    No... i won't give my vote to her.... Sorry Oprah.... but i didn't find any leadership quality to govern a country.

    ARE YOU CRAZY?  HELL NO, I WOULD VOTE FOR HER. SHE WOULD MAKE AN EVEN WORSE PRESIDENT THAN OBAMA. WHAT DOES SHE KNOW ABOUT RUNNING A COUNTRY?????  OBAMA KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT RUNNING A COUNTRY, BUT OPRAH KNOWS EVEN LESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    vellosposted 7 years ago

    I would first like to know her position on the issues..but frankly, I doubt I would vote for her since she has no prior political experience. For some this might be considered a plus but I prefer at least *some* experience so I can get an idea of how she might govern.

  15. profile image52
    GetPriceposted 7 years ago

    Definitely not. I think the real question is what gave you that idea, she doesn't have a single characteristics of a person that can make a change, she just knows how to entertain. Do you want another president that is just thee to entertain you???

    I think I'd rather eat rat poison and die a horrific, painful death than to see that idiot witch in politics.

    I'd like to get away from having TV stars become high profile politicians. Her heart is in the right place but I would prefer a Presdient with more hands on business expereince like Donald  Trump.

  18. Garrett Mickley profile image81
    Garrett Mickleyposted 7 years ago

    No because she's not been working in politics all of her life and therefore doesn't know how to be a politician.

    No, she is a great entertainer, probably would not make a good president.

    I would not vote for Oprah too many people see her as a type of Goddess and we don't need that. We already had that with G W Bush.

    Oprah may be good diplomat but has no experience as a statesman-so "no."

    No way, as Duffsmom says, great entertainer but I doubt she has the leadership capabilities.

    bobnplanoposted 7 years ago

    Absolutely not!  Why do people always think a celebrity can be president of the United States because they happen to be popular with the public.  I'm sorry but Oprah has issues she needs to overcome before she ever thinks she can be president!

    canadawest99posted 7 years ago

    Are you kidding me?  Oprah doesn't qualify for anything useful except to entertain bored housewives.

    And who says she is a pleasant and compassionate person?  The Bill Gates foundation is going around asking billionaires to donate half of their net worth to charity and she is one of the few who said no.   She is pathetic.

    Only if she's as effective as Bill Clinton was. (..I know, but the sex stuff had nothing to do with his capabilities. If you're having a heart attack and the best doctor is a creep do you go for the nice incompetent doctor nevertheless)? Think about it.

    Yes, definitely. Entertainers have a lot to loose by failing.

    No way, the "Oprahvacation" of society represents much of what is wrong in the world. . .

    Oh wait, I'm sorry, Saint Oprah, for doubting you. . .

    davidkalugeposted 7 years ago

    Well based on the platform of justice, she can be voted for and can stand for elections but she is not into politics so she certainly got little experience to lead a great nation like USA.
    She is good in her area of expertise which is entertainment. I just published a hub entitled “ A peep into the world of celebrities.”  She may have many fans but she got to know what her fans want , certainly must of them won’t want her in politics

    oprah is a wonderful smart person but i have to say that she would not have my vote. Maybe the president of the make a wish foundation or something but not for president. Oprah please stay doing what you do best!! I didnt vote the last president election because i just wasnt so sure about anyone at that time who ran. I think alot of people who voted for obama was because he was black, that was the wrong reason to vote. I think obama had every black persons vote.

    Imagine asking people this about Ronald Reagan years ago.  I wouldn't vote for her--only because I'm hoping she continues her talk show, and presidency would take time away from that!

    God, no! That woman is full of herself. It wouldn't be the United States of America if she were elected. It would be the United States of Oprah!

    Sorry. Just really, really don't like that woman.

    No. Although, she would have a great chance at winning. There are very tough decisions that equate to life and death that I simply don't believe she could handle.

    Definitely not, though I admire her talent ability on being a host. I think she will has the same great performances on being a president.
