Should Oprah be Running?

I first thought about Oprah as a candidate when Michael Moore suggested Oprah as a candidate in his book, Dude, Where's My Country. But after her campaigning for Obama over the weekend Howard Fineman and Craig Crawford thinks that maybe Oprah should be the one running.

Fineman says...

She is astonishing, truly. The woman was on her maiden campaign trail voyage, and yet she already she was better -- more cogent, more effective, more convincing -- than anyone out there.
Crawford adds...
Oprah Winfrey claimed to be nervous about her first public foray into presidential politics, but it didn’t show. Indeed, she delivers a better campaign speech than actual candidates -- so much so that you have to wonder whether she might run herself some day.
