Oprah Winfrey did ''think about'' running for President.

After her rousing speech at the Golden Globes as she collected the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement last month, many called for Oprah to run for president, something which she now admits she considered doing for a short time.

She said: ''When there was so much talk about it ... Gayle [King] was every day saying, 'You should think about it. You always say when things show up you should think about it.'

''I had a lot of wealthy men calling me, telling me they would run my campaign and raise a billion dollars for me. I think when you have that many people whose opinions you value coming at you, it's worthy of thinking about.''

However, the 64-year-old television personality has decided against the idea now because she has never felt that she was ''supposed to be political''.

Speaking in an upcoming interview for 60 Minutes, she added: ''I've never looked outside for other people to tell me when I should be making a move. And wouldn't I know? If God wanted me to run, wouldn't God tell me? I haven't heard that. I'd feel that I have a responsibility as a person who has a big voice in this country to use it to promote justice and kindness and good will in the world. It never has felt to me that that I was supposed to be political and it still does not feel that to me.''
