Oprah Winfrey Hints That She Wants To Be Part Of Joe Biden's Administration -- Where Does That Leave Kamala Harris?
If Joe Biden wants Oprah Winfrey to be his vice president or an advisor -- she is ready and willing, according to the person closest to her.
Oprah's longtime partner, Stedman Graham, recently did a brief interview and revealed that the media mogul would gladly step up to an important post in the White House if she gets the call to serve her country.
Stedman confessed that while the TV host and journalist is "not political," she has what it takes to be part of the administration.
Stedman stated: "She could definitely do a great job, and there's no question about it."
Asked whether or not she would agree to be vice president for Joe if he wins the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, Stedman had the following to say: "She's creative, has great ideas …She's a hard worker. She's detailed, you know, you can trust her. She can take the call, and she can be an advisor, how about that? She advises a lot of folks."
He also credited Oprah for getting Barack Obama elected in 2008.
He said: "Barack is in office today because of her. He was president of the United States because of her and other people, but mostly because of her. She would serve if Barack asked her to. She would serve in the capacity, but she's not political. She would be a great vice president, she would be a great president, but she's not political. Her role is to empower people all around the world. Bigger than the president."
In 2019, there was a lot of buzz about Oprah running for the highest office in the land.
Talking to PEOPLE magazine, she said this about the matter: "I had people ― wealthy, billionaires ― calling me up and saying, 'I can get you a billion dollars. I can run your campaign. That many people saying something made me think, 'Am I at least supposed to look at the question?'" "I went into prayer. God, if you think I'm supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.' And I haven't gotten that."
She added: "I've always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it's not something that interests me. I don't have the DNA for it. ... That's not for me."
Rumors have been flying high, claiming that Biden is hoping to pick California Senator Kamala Harris as his VP?
