There is a lot of chatter in the news today encouraging Oprah Winfrey to run for president, which is based on some acceptance speech she gave at some awards show. I just want to point out this is not new news.

Mike made this suggestion on August 13, 2002. To be fair, he suggested Oprah as VP and Tom Hanks as the presidential candidate, but did say that ticket would be a ‘guaranteed winner’. His exact prediction/statement: “Here’s a guaranteed winner, although they would likely be Democrats. How about the Tom Hanks – Oprah ticket? Everyone loves Tom Hanks, and Oprah would certainly get the female vote, and likely a good percentage of the black vote. So if the Dems put up the Hanks-Winfrey ticket, I’m headed to Canada!”

I suspect the threat to move to Canada is nulled by now, but maybe I better ask.
