Well done article. In the current political environment it is more important than ever to not just take candidates word for it or issues, but examine how they conduct themselves . Anyone can use the language and buzzwords of whatever group is being appealed to; how does that individual react when “off script” or pushed to really exhibit some knowledge of the issues at hand. AOC has not impressed in either way, not because she lacks intelligence but she clearly has not refined her thinking past just conviction that she is right. I suspect it comes from not having been challenged enough to self-evaluate, but regardless the why those limitations are being laid bare now.
