Asking Pelosi a question she can’t answer isn’t really new. For an example she doesn’t know the phone number for 911 or know how to spell IQ. She can’t name all 57 states and she has no idea what’s in a bill until after she votes for it. She has no clue as to the capitol of the United States or which booze goes best with food stamps. But she was truly confused when Anderson Cooper who the leader of the democratic party is. She just sits there as if she was suffering from Botox withdrawals.
To be fair there are a lot of people who can’t answer that question. In a recent poll, they asked who the leader of the democratic party is and “No One” won with 40%. Obama was second with 15%.
Fifteen percent named former President Obama as the party’s leader. Twelve percent said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has gone out of his way not to join the Democratic Party despite running for the its presidential nomination last year.
Eleven percent view Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as the party’s leader, and 10 percent answered with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
On the question of who should be a Democratic presidential candidate in 2020, Sanders led the field, at 14 percent, followed by former first lady Michelle Obama at 11 percent, Warren at 9 percent, Clinton at 8 percent, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each at 4 percent, and television personality Oprah Winfrey and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) each at 3 percent.
“We have leaders for all different aspects of it. The Democratic Party is a congressional party, and we have members in Congress. It is a gubernatorial party.”
“But on the state level,” Cooper interrupted. “It is a party which has suffered tremendous losses in the last couple of years under President Obama.”
“It has,” Pelosi conceded, “but we have a plan to address that.”
