Oprah Winfrey’s lifelong partner Stedman Graham spoke about his 33-year relationship with his partner and opened up about calls for her to stand as the Democratic candidate for the next Presidential election in 2020.
Asked whether she would be a good President, he said: “Of course, she’s a person who has the qualities to run for president. You can trust her, she is one of the greatest communicators in the world. She is self-made, nobody gave her anything. She understands the America free enterprise system and how it works. She cares about people and she has empathy."
Is it the right move for her? No
– Stedman Graham
He went on to say: “Is it the right move for her? No. Because she can do so much more behind the scenes because she doesn’t have all the controls politically. She is not divided by parties, she has the ability to move in and out all different circles. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to run for presidency because she can do so much more.”
