When a politician – or indeed anyone – becomes a star of a night, there is an inevitable collision that increases against the ascent. And less than three months into its first congressional cycle, the AOC restraint began seriously.
Members – especially those who hold swing districts that do not look like the AOC's solid Democratic Bronx / Queens seat – have passed.
Here's the problem with Anzalone and the 2020s lovers, as the former Colorado governor, John Hickenloop, who works as a pragmatic problem solver: Energy, activism and, yes, money comes from crazy hell. it is not the liberal base right now. This reality encourages candidates – especially in the presidential race – to run as far as possible because they are on the left where they get political results.
The real question is not, therefore, which part of the party is rising – it is certainly the wing of AOC / Bernie Sanders – but that these moderate and conservatives are treated by the party's liberals. Will they be thrown out because they are not loyal to the case – as a tea party (and Trump) Republicans have made their own centrist wings over the past decade? Or are liberals finding a way to incorporate the views of their more moderate party members when they try to find a candidate who can leave Donald Trump in 2020?
Anzalone again touches his head. "My main point about AOC is that while respecting the party's voice, I don't think he respects mine or anyone else who is different in politics or comes from another political election reality," he said.
The point: This ideological struggle within the Democratic Party reflects the broader debate that an Obama democracy could and should have looked at. OCCASION-Cortez? Joe Biden? Is it somewhere between the two?
