U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made an appearance last night on late night TV and was asked by her host what she’ll do if Bernie Sanders is not the Democratic Party nominee for president of the United States.
I keep circling back to this question: Why does — or should — anyone care what a freshman member of Congress thinks about the status of the primary race for the most powerful and exalted public office in the United States?
AOC wants Sanders to be the next president. Fine. That’s her call.
However, I continue to be amazed beyond all reason as to why she keeps getting the attention she garners.
AOC needs to earn her spurs. She needs to enact some meaningful legislation. She needs to develop a record of accomplishment.
I wish her well. I think she’s got a bright future in politics.
She’s just too damn green to be taken seriously … at this moment!
