Seems weird that when Sander's could have possibly been elected, that the Democratic party has decided to go with Schumer, Pelosi and Maxine Waters as the spokesman and salesman of the party.

Do they really want Maxine Waters discussing foreign policy in front the national news media?

What about Nancy Pelosi talking about not being able to work with President Bush?

Chuck Schumer and press conferences that are good jokes for President Trump?

Seems to me that with populist direction of the country that Sanders would be a much better spokesman.

Sure, as long as every answer to every question would be able to include the word "FREE".

The DNC is beholden to corporate interests. Sanders is not beholden to corporate interests. You see the problem there?

I don't think they consider Bern a democrat.

I thought you guys were joking but I guess not
Sanders isn't the spokemen because he's not a democrat.

Precisely, Sanders would never take money from George Soros but a democrat would have no qualms about doing so.

Are the resident Democrats here on C-D happy with people like Pelosi and Watters still running the show?

IMO

Sanders would be a much better overall leader. He already has a devout blue-collar base and for some reason, he also has a large following of students (all ethnic groups).

Many Trump devotees would gladly jump into the waiting arms of Bernie from Trump's sinking ship.
The DNC will not survive this time, if Bernie is ignored once again.

Most Americans would prefer a politician who's real, as opposed to a real politician!

Because Sanders is another populist like Trump just at a different spectrum. Pelosi and Schumer are both centrists and not liberal and not conservatives.
