Oprah Doesn't Seem To Rule Out The Idea Of Running For President

Is the White House ready for another billionaire President? Or a black president? Or a female president? Well, Oprah Winfrey charmingly indicated that the idea of breaking that last glass ceiling is not totally out of the question during an interview.

The talk show host-turned-lifestyle guru was interviewed by Bloomberg Media's David Rubinstein, who asked, "Have you ever thought, given the popularity that you have, we haven't yet broken the glass ceiling for women, that you could actually run for president and actually be elected?"

After cheers from the audience, she responded. From The Hill:

"I never considered the question, even a possibility,” she began, then suggesting the question made her reconsider the idea.

"I just thought, 'Oh... oh?,' " she continued.

"Because, it’s clear you don’t need government experience to be elected president of the United States," Rubenstein added.

"That’s what I thought," Winfrey said. "I thought, 'oh gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough'... And now I’m thinking — Oh."

Never say never, right?
