McAuliffe: There Isn’t a Single Leader of the Democrats

The former Clinton power fundraiser turned Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe made an accidental admission this week which he’ll probably regret.

During an interview with MSNBC McAuliffe was pressed to answer “Who is the leader of the Democratic Party right now?”

What was intended to be a sort of non-answer dodge turned out to be an ‘oops’ moment when he explained that there are “many leaders of the Democratic Party.”

When pressed to give a name, he refused, side-stepping, “I don’t think there is one person today.”

What was intended to sound like a very democratic answer turned out to be a revelation that the party is a leaderless horde too busy navel-gazing to discern what its future will be.

Perfect.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Governor Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) declined to name a single leader of the Democratic Party.

McAuliffe said that there are “many leaders of the Democratic Party.”

When pressed for a name, McAuliffe said he wouldn’t, and then stated, “I’ll say the governors who are leading their states, creating jobs, building infrastructure, building an education system that works.” He continued by praising “the folks on Capitol Hill who are doing what they’re doing. But, you know, we need some action out of Washington to help us compete on a global basis. And today, we are not seeing anything out of Washington. It is broken.”

McAuliffe reiterated that he doesn’t think there is one leader of the Democratic Party at the moment.
