Oprah is "actively thinking" about running for office in 2020, according to two of her close friends speaking to CNN. Winfrey's rousing and moving acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille award spurred speculation about the possibility of a presidential run. Winfrey's longtime partner Stedman Graham further confirmed the possibility of a 2020 campaign—"It's up to the people," Graham told a Los Angeles Times reporter. "She would absolutely do it."

A representative for Winfrey did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
