Plus she has experience giving away stuff for free on her show. She checks all the boxes.
IMO...I don't think the DNC would go all in on Oprah. Like the RNC, they are party loyalists. They will have their "political candidate/s". Unfortunately for them, there aren't many that stand out. They were propping up an African American lawyer Kamala Harris recently.
