Rapper Common thinks Oprah should run for President.
“It would be amazing to have a woman, a black woman, in that position — but more importantly, just somebody that loves and that cares.”
The Chicago rapper told Variety on Saturday that he thinks Oprah should run for President, even though he doesn’t think she will.
“Of course, I think she should run, but I don’t think she will,” Common told Variety during the Sundance Film Festival’s “Respect Rally.”
“I think what we all got a taste of when she did her Golden Globes speech, it just reminded us when leaders that are compassionate and leaders that care, what it would be like to have a leader like that again,” Common said.
“One thing that I loved about President Obama was, no matter what his politics was, you could tell he cared about human beings,” he continued. “And at the core, Oprah is one of those dynamic human beings that cares about people, and we all saw that light, like, ‘Wow, this would be amazing.’ Of course, it would be amazing to have a woman, a black woman, in that position — but more importantly, just somebody that loves and that cares.”
