Oprah Winfrey is one of the most admired and powerful people in the world. And she uses her powers for good.

After starting her career as first black female news anchor at Nashville’s WLAC-TV, she moved up the ladder quickly because of her intelligence and natural presence. Eventually landing her first talk show host gig at AM Chicago, she quickly took the ailing property to the top of the ratings. She even beat out legendary TV personality Phil Donahue. After that, nothing could stop her.

She went on to have acting roles in major movies, her own talk show, and eventually her very own network. She still hasn’t slowed down either. With her boundless energy, generosity and charm, she is an excellent candidate for President. She’d make a mighty fine Senator, too.
