Democrats and other opponents of Donald Trump sometimes refer to him derisively as America's first reality show president.
Now it seems like they might be willing to pin their hopes to another TV star.
Oprah Winfrey is reportedly "intrigued" by the idea of a run at the presidency. The talk show host turned media magnate is a true American success story. And she has a big fan base built over the decades.
But is that enough to propel her into the White House?
No one knows whether Winfrey will run. This could be just a lot of talk and speculation. But then again, President Trump wasn't in the race until he was. And few thought he could win until he did.
We want to know what you think. Would you consider voting for Oprah Winfrey if she decided to run for president? Or is she someone you would not vote for?

Last Week: Equal Pay and the Law.
Last week's question was about equal pay laws. Should the U.S. have a strong, enforced law requiring equal pay for equal work with penalties for companies that do not comply? Or should government stay out of it and allow companies to deal with the matter on their own?
Companies have had 55 yrs. to "deal with it." So there should be an enforceable law requiring equal pay for equal work. It is long overdue.—J.B., Texarkana, Ark.
