    She is incredibly ordinary but seems to not have inherited her parents evil greed.

    The verb "have to" can work two different ways --- one implies desire, the other a factual necessity.

    1 - "you have to put on a Tom Brady T-shirt before I'll go out with you"
    2 - "the Eagles have to get to the 31 for a first down"

    Obviously speaker one is expressing a preference, while speaker two is simply stating a fact without a preference.

    Seems pretty clear the Oprah statement uses the second sense.

    .In context I think she was speaking about generational changes to finally overcome the problems, and that means that over time the generations will take the old ways to their graves, and the new ones will unite to overcome it all. The only problem is, is that as long as that evil Satan is involved, it will continue on and on and on. Let's say the racism stops, well it will just be replaced with something else. Done seen it happen, and you have seen it to I bet. The introduction of sin into the mix as if it is good, uh begins a whole new round of prejudices and discriminations where people attempt to separate themselves and their children from such things. It won't ever end until the good Lord ends it, and places that old serpent into the pit where he belongs.

    Will she campaign in between doing the latest diet fad?... 2020... OPRAH / SUSAN ( that woman who helped start GOOGLE) both campaigning while on the latest diet fad.
    Career

    In September 1998, the same month that Google was incorporated, its founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin set up office in Wojcicki's garage in Menlo Park. Before becoming Google's first marketing manager in 1999, Wojcicki worked in marketing at Intel in Santa Clara, California] and was a management consultant at Bain & Company and R.B. Webber & Company. At Google, she worked on the initial viral marketing programs, as well as the first Google Doodles. Wojcicki also took part in the development of successful contributions to Google such as Google Images and Google Books.

    She handled two of Google’s largest acquisitions — the $1.65 billion purchase of YouTube in 2006 and... GettyImages-474281521.jpg image.jpg

    I agree with that assessment, until you get to the Satan part. That's a cop-out. But as far as the quote's intent, yes.

    Oh you laugh but that's a real statement posted to me last night. I decided the date wasn't worth the shame of wearing a Tom Brady shirt. Although I did offer to wear a Marcia Brady shirt.

    So you just feel that evil is in ones character, but rather you just can't explain where it comes from. Educate yourself.

    No, I feel that I don't need to anthropomorphize emotional dynamics into a comic book character as a way of running away from responsibility for them. That's just childish. Moreover I don't believe Winfrey made any reference to "Satan" in the interview at all.

    No, integrity, sanity, self-discipline, and the ability to get along with others. I could go on, and on.
