Influential talk-show host, Oprah Winfrey says Clinton, who is striving to become the first female president, has her support in the 2016 election.
‘America, it’s about time that we make that decision,’ Winfrey told Entertainment Tonight, endorsing Clinton.
Winfrey passed over Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primary for Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president. Term limited, Obama’s on his way out this year, and she’s now backing Clinton.
She said at the time that it wasn’t personal, and she has ‘great respect’ for the former first lady.
‘Because I am for Barack does not mean I am against Hillary or anybody else,’ Winfrey said.
In Clinton now, Winfrey sees the possibility of making history again by helping to put the first woman in the Oval Office.
‘I really believe that that is going to happen,’ she told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday evening at the premiere of Greenleaf, a new drama on OWN.
