'National voice': Young Democrats want AOC to be president
After a whirlwind month that saw her crisscross the United States in support of Sen. Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being called a 'national voice' by supporters who would like to see her become president one day.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a leader in the progressive movement, Sanders campaign adviser Jeff Weaver told Politico. She is broadly popular, frankly, among Democratic voters. She is particularly strong with young voters, voters of color. Shes an important national voice, and adding her weight to the political revolution is a real coup for us.
Calls for Ocasio-Cortez to be Sanders's vice president pick have ramped up after Sanders said the New York Democrat would play a very, very important role in his potential White House.
To hold the office of vice president, a candidate must be at least 35 years old and a natural-born citizen. Though she isn't old enough to hold the position, when asked, Ocasio-Cortez, 30, said, "It'd be an honor to be vice president.
Waleed Shahid, a former aide who has worked with both Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, suggested the New York freshman has an untapped and far-reaching base.
AOC is popular among many diverse constituencies in the Democratic base, and particularly among unlikely voters, Shahid said.

Is she even old enough, not that laws apply to Dems or anything?
People in hell want ice water.
These fools think she is actually popular! She polls very badly outside her weird district.
5 more years she will be eligible.
7 more years.
She is fully enrolled in the Young Pioneers Division of the National Socialist Democrat Workers Party, aka DNC.
The “moderate” leftist wing of the RAT Party have lost control. AOC and Comrade Sanders are the real leaders of their party today.
Obama was not a natural born citizen.
As long as Nancy signs off, she is eligible.
Older Republicans just may want her to get naked.
1000 more years.
Isn’t she 30??
Just in case the pendulum swings back that far Im staying way overstocked on projectile equipment.
I want AOC to star in a porn flick but that ain’t gonna happen. But...I suppose there’s a better chance of that than her being POTUS.
They all think that all the smart people agree with them.
A.I. is smarter...😋
