CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked a panel of six Democratic voters for their thoughts on democratic socialist star Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), and the panel's collective reaction ought to make every Republican voter and politician nervous.
While CNN's own tweet overstated that "the panel erupted in cheers," the voters — all of whom supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 — indicated that Ocasio-Cortez, 29, should enjoy a long political career if Democratic voters have anything to say about it.
What did they say?
Panelist Carol Evans excitedly noted "what a woman" while panelist Mary Reaman called the newly minted congresswoman "badass" and "amazing."
"She's asking the right questions. I don't feel like she's playing games," Reaman added. "I'm so excited about her. She is smart, she is intelligent, and I cannot wait to see what else she does."
Panelist Michael Milisits said, "I know she's got the Democratic Party nervous. And ... in a way they should be nervous because ... she does represent the new guard, the new generation."
Panelist Christian Tamte called Ocasio-Cortez "the candidate of the future. She's got this down pat. And she has also nailed it as a woman in a male-dominated field ... get ready for her, 'cause she's comin'."
Oh, and about Joe Biden
When Camerota asked the panel for a show of hands if they would like to see former Vice President Joe Biden "get in," not one hand went up — but there was plenty of pained expressions and heads shaking "no."
"What's happening?" a shocked Camerota responded.
"His time is done," panelist Evans stated.
Panelist Russell Banks said Biden "comes from kind of the good ol' boy politics of the past."
"I don't think Joe Biden represents that new thing that we need," panelist Owen Evans said. "We need a new economy, we need a new politics, and we need someone different."
