Joe Lieberman, 76, Says AOC, 29, Isn't The Future

The vast accumulation of wealth at the top is matched by inordinate concentrations of political power

Her new chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, told supporters during a November conference call that 'we gotta primary folks'.

Lawmakers have been quietly criticizing the NY newcomer and are hoping to rein in her criticism of those in her own party, Politico reported, citing almost 20 lawmakers and aides.

"I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right", she told host Anderson Cooper.

Just kidding, she'll keep on plugging away on the exact social and environmental reforms she has been, which will ultimately do more to save us than Joe Lieberman ever did. "She's controversial", Lieberman continued.

"If you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House, they tend to be, I say, center-left, if they are not left-left".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's journey to Washington began in the Bronx, N.Y., where she was born to Puerto Rican parents.

Joe Lieberman, a former Democratic Delaware senator and vice presidential candidate, leveled his own criticism Thursday, telling Fox Business, "With all respect, I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is". "That is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans".

Suozzi will assume the committee seat of Rep. Joe Crowley, the Queens Democrat Ocasio-Cortez defeated past year in a stunning upset.

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is a registered Democrat but identifies as a democratic socialist, is in line to be appointed to the House Financial Services Committee, according to a Politico report.

Politico noted that Ocasio-Cortez's star power includes being better known by millions of Americans than longtime House Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi and John Lewis.

However, Ocasio-Cortez has seen an explosion in popularity, thanks especially to Facebook and Twitter, neither of which existed when Lieberman ran for vice president in 2000.
