So the Financial Times ran a story about possible "Celebrity Dems" who might bring some new energy to an aging party.
Most of the names are business Celebrities like Howard Schultz of StarBucks, Mark Zuckerberg of FaceBook, and Bob Iger of Disney.
That last name baffles me: Does anyone outside of Stock Market junkies and Disney shareholders even know who the hell Bob Iger is?
The last name makes the most sense: OPRAH!
She has the same level of name recognition as Trump, maybe even moreso. She has a keen business accumen, having built an empire around her TV show and other endeavors. She also runs her businesses personally, insisting on signing the check herself.
Don't actually know her politics in detail, but I'd assume they fall into line with what's called "Progressivism" today.
On the negative side, this is a desperate balloon being floated when the best hope for the Democratic party is "only a celebrity can save us!"
Also, we now have a pretty good track record of Celebs going into politics, with Jessie "The Body" Ventura, Arnold, and now Trump. I exclude Al Frankin from the list because he made his bones as a writer for SNL before and after being on camera.
What do YOU think?
