House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) recently dodged a question from CNN’s Anderson Cooper when he asked her who leads the Democratic Party.
The Free Beacon reported:
“Who is the leader of the Democratic Party right now?” Cooper asked Pelosi.
“Well, President Obama was the president of the United States until just a matter of weeks ago,” Pelosi said. “I don’t think that he can be dismissed as the leader of the Democratic Party. Hillary Clinton did not win the election, but a respected leader.”
“But we have leaders for all different aspects of it,” Pelosi added.
Cooper pointed out that the Democratic Party “suffered tremendous losses” on the state level under former President Obama.
“It has, but we have a plan to address that,” Pelosi responded.
Cooper reiterated his question on whether the Democratic Party has a “standard-bearer” for leading the party.
“So there’s not one standard-bearer that you see as the leader of the Democratic Party?” Cooper asked.
“We’re not in a presidential time,” Pelosi responded, without offering any names of Democratic lawmakers..
The Democratic Party is in absolute ruins after being under President Barack Obama for eight years. The Democrats have no clear leader which is great news for the Republican Party who is likely to continue thriving for the foreseeable future.
