TV’s ‘Roseanne’ mulling presidential run web link 

Roseanne Barr says she's thinking about a campaign for the White House in 2016.

"I might keep running till I win," the 61-year-old comedian told the New York Daily News. "I definitely can win -- it's a possibility, it's not a probability but it's a possibility. If you can make it to the ballot, you can win."

According to the newspaper, TV's "Roseanne" received more than 60,000 votes in 2012. President Barack Obama won re-election that year with more than 60 million votes; GOP candidate Mitt Romney received 57.6 million.

Barr lost the Green Party's presidential primary in California but won the nomination for the Peace and Freedom Party. She told The Associated Press at the time that she sees the two major political parties as serving interests, not the public.

That’s a substantial gain and an almost total reversal over a nearly three-month period in the Washington Post/ABC News poll.
