Yes, I could support Oprah. For one, she's an environmentalist and applied green principles when she remodeled her Santa Barbara estate. She was raised in near poverty and understands the plight of the poor. She raised to the top by her bootstraps. She oversees a vast conglomerate empire which I envision couold be equal to Mr Trump's holdings but more diverse. She's an excellent manager. She gets my vote.

But who I would like to see run is Gov Jerry Brown with Julian Castro as a running mate.

As for Kamala Harris, I view her as a kinder version of Congresswoman Wasserman-Schyltz -- a corporate elitist.

Please, no. Oprah might be a good and charismatic speaker, but she hase 0 knowledge about politics and how the things work behind the scenes. She might become a new pope or something, but not the president of our great country...

Best regards,

our country is objectively one of the best countries in the world. certain cultures are objectively better than others. consider a culture that denies women the right to vote vs a culture that gives all citizens the right to vote. america is a great country. you shouldn't be cynical about that fact. having a negative attitude about a great circumstance deteriorates the society's morale and confuses people about good and bad. it's really not a small thing to insult and degrade the first country to outlaw the ownership of other human beings. other countries have followed suit, but since the foundation of this country and to this day, we have been the moral and ethical leaders of the world. you do not want to trade our values for ANY other countries values.

Well granny I suggest you first pick up and read an honest history book. Perhaps some Howard Zinn would be a good lesson plan. Because you've started out factually wrong;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_abolition_of_slavery_and_serfdom

Second I suggest you read up on voting supression and disenfranchisment from both yesteryear and unto today. Then for fun you can look up the term 'the new jim crow laws'.

One of the first things to realize is that to even begin baby steps toward making this country that fairy tale vision you hold so dear to your breast is the fact of what this country actually has been built on and is to this day as nothing but as thieves, looters and murdering pillagers mouthing some fine words, words that have never been lived up to neither here at home or abroad. Call it your personal facing in the first rung of the twelve step program for a new AA (asshole american) rehab.

So yeh, let us all by all means talk about this 'great country of ours'.

I suspect Oprah would say that its a great country we live in, but it is all immaterial anyway. In her recent interview, she said something to the effect that "God had not told her to run".

Well she should know that is the kiss of death for any card carrying progressive to even mention God. What in the world was she thinking?

Democrats Should Steal Trump's Thunder on Trade

It's time to run bigger, better and harder on trade policies.
