While initial reports seemed to indicate that Winfrey was seriously considering taking the plunge, her allies have since thrown some cold water on the notion that it is a sure thing. "He would never do that".
"She's intrigued by the idea". But in another TV interview in October, she dampened speculation, stating, "There will be no running for office of any kind for me".
Meanwhile, a Care2.com petition to draft her into running has gained 4,000 signatures since its launch on Monday. "She loves this country and would like to be of service in some way, but I don't think that she's actively considering it". "I don't", King said, adding that she was up late last night discussing the possibility with her close friend.

Actress, movie and television producer, and chief executive of her OWN cable channel, Winfrey, 63, was celebrated as a role model for women and a person who has promoted strong female characters. "You always have the right to change your mind".
No clear Democratic front-runner has emerged to challenge Trump in 2020, with the immediate political focus in the US on November's congressional elections, when the 435-member House of Representatives will be up for election, along with a third of the 100-member Senate.
After slamming NBC News for its deleted "OUR future president" tweet about Oprah, and using it to take more shots at the network, Hannity then derided "private jet liberals" over their "newfound political affection for Oprah".
