Yes, he did - if you believe that AOC may be coming to make your country a more comfortable place in which to exist.
But I do not believe she is coming to do that.
Believe it or not, my comments at this board are not (and have never been) aimed at the individuals that take part here, but at the ideas that they promote through the information and views that they post.
She's another Obama and has the added value of, what would you call it, lapsed gravitas? She's likeable where Obama was merely polished and articulate and she's demonstrated that she 'understands the arguments.' She's also indicated that she isn't advocating a departure from business as usual so much as a radical return to business as usual. That is, Feel Good about America Again. She's already indicated that the wars will continue and she'll feel bad about it so that you don't have to. More to the point, she's offering limited improvement to the lives of Americans. The world will still burn, but you'll have some respite and a cup of water while it happens.
Tulsi seems real enough and possibly strong enough to make a fight of it. She's smart enough for the battles we're told are politically unwinnable (by the grey establishment) but which have massive popular support and which she can articulate the path toward, for most Americans. She's ignored by all the right people, attacked by the all the right people and willing to work outside the red/blue party if need be.
