Ocasio-Cortez Says She Could Support Pelosi

The revolution will be televised (and co-opted by the Washington establishment).

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the democratic socialist who took down high-ranking Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in a primary, told CBS’s Margaret Brennan that she could support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a potential leadership battle.

Asked if she would support Pelosi for leadership, the Democrat first dodged.

“I need to get to Congress first. I need to work on winning my general election,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “She’s the current party leader, and I look forward to be part of that conversation and winning back the House.”

“So you are leaving open the possibility you may endorse her if you win in November?” Brennan asked.

“Yeah!” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

Pelosi has occupied her position as Democratic leader since 2003, and Ocasio-Cortez rode an anti-establishment, socialist wave to her primary victory.

Despite voters’ revolutionary hopes, it appears the Democratic Party will fail to adapt. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
