“I’m with her,” Winfrey said. “Regardless of your politics, it’s a seminal moment for women. What this says is, there is no ceiling, that ceiling just went boom! It says anything is possible when you can be leader of the free world.”
Winfrey said she thinks it’s time for America to have a woman president.
“I really believe that is going to happen. It’s about time that we make that decision.” (RELATED: Hillary’s Going To Be Jumping Up And Down On A Couch After This Endorsement)
In 2007, Winfrey endorsed Barack Obama for president during an interview with Larry King. It was the first time the mogul had ever endorsed a political candidate.
“What made you do so now?” King asked Winfrey at the time.
“Because I know him personally,” Winfrey said back.
“I think that what he stands for, what he has proven that he can stand for, what he has shown was worth me going out on a limb for – and I haven’t done it in the past because I haven’t felt that anybody, I didn’t know anybody well enough to be able to say, I believe in this person.”
“I have not one negative thing to say about Hillary Clinton.”
