Jimmy Dore is a comedian but he's taken to commenting on politics and is unburdened by being a part of the corporate media, so can comment critically on the corporate/donor-class Democrats. Glenn Greenwald is a journalist, but not for the corporate media so can regularly speak truth to power.

26:15 is the start of direct AOC talk, but it is part of what was said earlier, at least by 23:40.

AOC is just the latest reboot of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington....all that was old is new again....or never really changed to begin with, but we *think* it's new. It's just NOW, but not so new.

That said, AOC totally rocks, imo. She HAS brought a new dimension to Congress, and is the face of (potential!) change. Contrary to what was said in the video, she DID oppose the idea of re-instating Nancy Pelosi. But like any politician, she understands the importance of the team concept that is necessary to get anything done in Congress. That's not a weakness on her part, but demonstrative of a flaw in our system: Might/Numbers/Power makes things happen, good or bad.

And she's not the first; Bernie and Elizabeth don't have the patina of youth and sass AOC brings to the game, but their ideas are every bit as Big n' Bold as hers.

Greenwald said she opposed the idea of Pelosi continuing as Speaker:

Quote:
I asked her if she won if she would support Pelosi and Hoyer for leadership. She said "Absolutely not, they've been there too long we need new leadership. I won't vote for them." She f'ing wins, what does she do? She gets to Congress, the first thing she does is she votes for Pelosi and Hoyer. ... She now calls Pelosi Mama Bear.


You may be saying that he didn't mention that AOC put up some resistance to Pelosi being re-elected in the period between when she won and before she was in Congress, which she did for 16 days.


Pelosi later agreed (at age seventy eight) to limit her leadership to another 4 years in order to get 7 Democrats to vote for her. 15 Democrats did not vote for Pelosi and 4 refused to reveal how they voted.

I take your point that AOC and others of similar ideology need to go along with the corporate Democrats in many cases as they are the minority in power, but it will be interesting to see if they get upset with the Biden administration if they govern more in line with how DNC guests Meg Whitman and John Kasish expect and want than what AOC and Sanders expect and want. I think that the latter two will be ones that will be disappointed.
