Many people agree Oprah Winfrey would be a great presidential candidate. And while 2020 seems like a long time away, time flies when you’re having fun. While the thought of Oprah as president is appealing, we must also consider it may not be a part of her agenda.

If not Oprah then who

1.) Michelle Obama – First Lady Michelle Obama, while in the White House accomplished great things. Not only was the First Lady a role model for women. But also an advocate for poverty awareness, education, nutrition, physical activity and a fashion icon. Her background includes degrees from Harvard and Princeton. If you’re not sold with that information, she spent 8 years in the White House alongside her husband/President of the U.S. Barack Obama. Michelle would make an exemplary presidential candidate.

2.) Joe Biden – Joe Biden has been in the governmental sector since 1969 and served in many capacities including Councilman, Senator & Vice President of the U.S. He advocated for intervention in the Bosnian War in 1994/1995. As well he voted for resolution of the 2012 Iraq war. During President Obama’s last year in office he awarded Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom award.

We have no doubt Joe would be a great President, matching his efforts as the “Best Vice President of America.”

3.) Bill Gates – Bill Gates III has created a lasting impression from his success as a Businessman, philanthropist, investor, computer programmer and inventor. Bill Gates has been on the Forbes list of wealthiest people since 1987 and is no stranger to hard work. He challenges other billionaires to support philanthropy efforts through the giving of half their wealth via his “Giving Pledge” foundation.

If Oprah’s not our next president I’ll take one of these candidates.
