My adult daughter said a whole lot of stupid people would vote for Oprah because they love her.
However, I don't think it would work.
She is an extreme liberal Democrat
and I don't see her running on a Republican ticket.
Actually a lot of stupid Republicans would vote for Trump, because they watch his show and think he is so great.
A lot of stupid Democrats would vote for Oprah because she is black, a woman, and projects such a lovely image, as well as being a smart business
As an independent ticket, they would probably win a lot of votes.
My daughter's thought was that this ticket would strip the Democrats of votes, enabling an easy Republican win, if they run as independents and not on
the Republican ticket.
My thoughts: as an independent ticket, it just might be a winner.
Not because it would be a good ticket,
but because most people are not politically savvy
and it would draw out a great number of couch potatoes,
who live off TV and drool at the alter of the screen on the wall,
who could swing the vote enough to actually win.
Maybe Trump knows what he is proposing, a truly
winning ticket in the age of mass media.
