Perhaps he isn’t enough of a socialist?
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” she is not thrilled about a potential Presidential run by former Vice President Joe Biden.
“I’m very supportive of Bernie’s run. … I haven’t endorsed anybody, but I’m very supportive of Bernie,” Ocasio-Cortez said, adding, “I also think what Elizabeth Warren has been bringing to the table is … truly remarkable, truly remarkable and transformational.”
But Biden doesn’t “animate” her and she also has some “issues” with him as a candidate.
“I don’t know. I mean … I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is,” she said.
Yet she seemed decidedly unenthusiastic about the prospect of a Biden candidacy.
“That does not particularly animate me right now,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
The congresswoman said she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden White House bid.
“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”
They also asked her if she would run for a higher office someday, to which she replied that what’s she’s doing now is “pretty hard already.”
“I just want to be most useful, and I’m not trying to kind of impose some personal ambition,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I think that, if a window opens and I feel like I can do well, and do better, and offer more to people, then I would consider it. But … I don’t have like a 10-year plan or a five-year plan or anything.”
Probably because we’ll all be dead because of climate change anyway.
