Bernie Sanders: AOC will have key role in my White House if I'm elected in 2020
She is, again, at the end of one year she is a leader in the United States Congress and her ideas are resonating all over this country," he said. "If I am in the White House, she will play a very, very important role, no question."

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., would be given a vital role in a Bernie Sanders administration and could even be tapped for a cabinet-level position, the 2020 presidential hopeful told ABC News on Sunday.
"Look, I have said this before, let me say it again -- and I don't want [Ocasio-Cortez] to hear this, because [her] head will explode," Sen. Sanders, I-VT., said during a joint interview alongside the freshman House member.

"I don't know of any person -- I've been in Congress for a few years, who in the course of less than one year -- she's been in office less than one year, who has had more of an impact on American politics as a freshman member of Congress than she has."
When asked about the possibility of Ocasio-Cortez joining his cabinet, Sander responded that she's deserving of an influential role if he wins in 2020.

"She is, again, at the end of one year she is a leader in the United States Congress and her ideas are resonating all over this country," he said. "If I am in the White House, she will play a very, very important role, no question."

Sanders also criticized former New York City mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg in the same interview for floating the idea of his own presidential run, and declining to campaign in the early primary states.

"That is the arrogance of billionaires," he said  "I'm doing five events this weekend right here in Iowa.
"We're all over New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, California. But he's too important. You see, when you're worth $50 billion, I guess you don't have to have town meetings, you don't have to talk to ordinary people," Sanders said. "What you do is you take out, I guess a couple of billion dollars, and you buy the state of California."

Lmao Ole Bernie will do anything for a vote. Why not use the socialist dingbat for one.

About the only impact she has had on American politics is proof that people will vote for anybody if you promise them free shit.

I disagree. I don't think a Bernie/AOC ticket would get many votes except from the extreme left - although I think it would guarantee a Trump reelection, even if just due to a lot of people just not voting because they couldn't stomach either choice.

Even Bloomberg sees that these two socialist can't beat Trump. I just seen Deval Patrick has jumped into the clown show also.

Sad to hear. Personally, I am much more interested in what's good for the country, rather than focusing on pissing off members of a political party. Trump deserves to be impeached and your partisanship shouldn't blind you to that fact. You should expect ethics and integrity of any president, not give him a pass because he's in your party.

I will never understand why the GOP and Republicans don't want decent GOP candidates in a primary for this election.

On what grounds? Yesterday, Rep. John Ratcliffe asked both William B. Taylor and George Kent to state an impeachment offense. Both sat there in embarrassing silence and could not answer, and they are Schiff's and Pelosi's key witnesses!

By that rationale, Clinton should have been removed just for his behavior with Monica Lewinski, not to mention his other mistresses. We wouldn't have even had to wait for lying under oath and obstruction of justice, which is what he was actually impeached for.

Gee, you sound surprised that a political party with an incumbent President eligible for another term doesn't have a bunch of candidates running against him.

Why would the GOP not back someone who has already proven he could--and did---beat the very best the Democratic Party could offer America?

You object to 17 billion dollars a year to upgrade public housing? 

How about this? We take the 17 billion a year for that out of the 700 billion a year spent on the military. That will leave the military industrial complex with 683 billion dollars a year.   Everybody's happy.

I dont know if you are capable of understanding this or not, but in a capitalist economic system there are ALWAYS poor people, who in turn would probably need public housing. There is no stepping stone in which the poor disappear one day. 

Paying for "public housing" is nothing but the cost of doing business. Stop bitching about it.

He succeeded and that’s why he is running again. His intent is to influence the party not to win the election.
