CNN Panel of Democratic Voters Go Nuts Over ‘Bad Ass’ AOC: ‘She Is the Candidate of the Future!’

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) received unanimous applause on Wednesday when she became the leading topic among CNN’s panel of Democratic voters.

As Alisyn Camerota asked her panel for their thoughts about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the conversation evolved into how the Democrats are debating how much they ought to stick with the experienced political establishment. When Camerota asked them for their thoughts on Ocasio-Cortez, the panel lit up as they called her “badass” “amazing” and a litany of other positive reactions.

Panelist Mary Reaman commended Ocasio-Cortez or the questions she asked in the Michael Cohen hearing.

“I don’t feel like she’s playing games,” Reaman said. “I’m so excited about her. She is smart, she is intelligent, and I cannot wait to see what else she does.”

Michael Milisits spoke of how Ocasio-Cortez represents the “new generation” for Democrats, and Christian Tamte said, “she is the candidate of the future.”
