The speculation was further fueled when Oprah’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham
told reporters after the ceremony that she would “absolutely” run.
Oprah’s best friend, journalist Gayle King, clarifies Stedman’s comments. She says,
Stedman says that he thought the reporter said to him?,? ‘Would she make a good president?’ And he said ‘Absolutely she would.’ That’s how he interpreted the question, because this is the thing – Stedman would never so cavalierly say absolutely she would do it. It’s up to the people. He would never do that.
Meanwhile, Gayle weighs in on the possibility stating,
I do think she’s intrigued by the idea. I do think that. I also know after years of watching the Oprah show, you always have a right to change your mind?. I don’t? ?think at this point she is actually considering it.
