Oprah Winfrey’s best friend, Gayle King, cooled the debate over whether the famous talk show host would run for president in 2020 saying she’s simply “intrigued” by the idea.

Speaking to her “CBS This Morning” co-anchors, King said Tuesday that Winfrey’s longtime stance on the issue hasn’t changed and that after speaking with her, she doesn’t think she’s “actively considering” a presidential bid.

Leaving the door open for possibility, King did hint at Winfrey’s interest on the topic.

“I do think she was intrigued by the idea. I do think that. I also know that after years of watching the ‘Oprah Show,’ you always have the right to change your mind,” King told her co-anchors.
