Again the political elites chortled - Oprah Winfrey!

But this one was different.

Still, others have noted that running for president could damage the media mogul. Although nothing has been officially confirmed on Winfrey's side, only time will tell if she indeed has any political intentions.

Steven Spielberg chimed in with his support when asked by The Guardian on Thursday, commenting: "I think Oprah Winfrey would make an absolutely brilliant president". Fake news! That didn't happen. While Democratic operatives won't be taking this all that seriously, the excitement her speech has stirred up reminds us how disoriented and lacking in leadership American liberals are right now.

Ms Winfrey's rousing speech at Sunday's Golden Globes Awards ceremony ignited speculation that the billionaire talk show queen is harbouring Oval Office ambitions.

But something did happen in the ballroom of the Hollywood Hills Hotel on Sunday.

"I don't think she's going to run", he said, according to a pool report. "I'd much rather go for someone like Oprah Winfrey than a career politician", Spielberg said. Oprah is one of many potential celebrity candidates who have been mentioned in recent months, a group that has included Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and mark Cuba, a businessman and owner of the Dallas Mavericks. She had Donald Trump, this was before politics, her last week. For starters, her dear pals, former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, have some pretty deep contact lists. But listen, there are people who have said they want to be her campaign manager, who want to quit their jobs and campaign for her. Her speech was unbelievable not only for its power, but for the fact that she delivered it extemporaneously (unless the text was scrolling on an unseen TelePrompter). "I want her to run for president", Streep told The Washington Post.

LINDA MOTTRAM: So, do you think she'll stand? We're ahead of you.

Trump and Huckabee Sanders" assessments came on the heels of Winfrey's best friend Gayle King telling audiences on CBS This Morning, the show she co-hosts, that the queen of talk is "intrigued' by the idea of running for president.

It comes after Winfrey's longterm partner Stedman Graham revealed that she would "absolutely" run for president.
