One year after the presidential election and we seem to be anxious to vote again.
Only a few minutes after Oprah Winfrey delivered her moving speech at the Golden Globe Sunday, she sparked presidential speculation.
Are we desperate for what?

But for president, we need more skills than that. The past year is a great testament for the need to have a president with a proven experience in public office.
Oprah has the traits of a wonderful person. She is a successful businesswoman and an effective show host. She gives a great speech and all of sudden, we want her to run for office.
