Rubenstein asked Winfrey, 63, during a recent appearance on The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations.

"I don't know enough, '" she said on "The David Rubenstein Show". He first suggested she appear on his ticket when he first considered running for President in 1999 and reiterated that sentiment at the onset of his campaign previous year.

"Regardless of your politics, it's a seminal moment for women".
