House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) dodged a question from CNN’s Anderson Cooper regarding who exactly the leader of the Democratic Party is, during an interview on Tuesday night.
“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. 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 responded.
Cooper pointed out to Pelosi that, on the state level, the Democratic Party has “suffered tremendous losses” under President Obama.
Pelosi acknowledged that it has, but told Cooper the party has a plan to address that. She would not go into specifics as to what that plan is.
Yesterday, Harvard-Harris Poll released a survey that said 40 percent of people polled consider the Democratic Party to have no leader. Pelosi’s answers here will not help ease concerns that the Democratic Party is without a leader and rudderless at the moment.
