It’s no secret that the up and coming leaders in the Democrat party want to take it in a far more radical direction than the older mainstays of the party. Even Obama isn’t progressive enough these days.
And neither is Joe Biden according to Ilhan Omar.
Addressing the Iowa People’s Presidential Forum, Omar said that Democrats need “a president who realizes we are not just fighting for one election, we are fighting for the very soul of our democracy and what society we want to become”.
The Guardian asked Omar if Biden was that type of candidate.
“There are few people who fit into the kind of progress that we all want to see in this country,” Omar said. “And I would say he is not one of them.
“I think it has been very clear to many of the people who have been creating the kind of movement that is exciting generations, that we want somebody who really has a plan that is going to tackle a lot of the systematic challenges that we have, and he doesn’t.”
