(CNN) — Washington (CNN)Oprah or Tom Hanks for president, and Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison for Democratic National Committee chairman.
That's the leadership that liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is pitching as Democrats navigate a leadership vacuum now that Hillary Clinton has lost to Donald Trump and President Barack Obama is preparing to leave the White House.
"Democrats would be better off if they ran Oprah or Tom Hanks ... why don't we run beloved people?" Moore told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."
"We have so many of them," he said. "The Republicans do this -- they run Reagan and the Terminator and other people." It was a reference to former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, as well as former President Ronald Reagan.
