Tonight YouTube recommended I watch this Netflix documentary that followed the campaigns from the very beginning for three unknowns, one a poor barmaid from the Bronx who was campaigning against one of the most powerful democrats in congress — a man who'd been unchallenged for 10 terms. Netflix got lucky; she shocked the nation when she won and it made an amazing documentary.
Her political views aside, you could tell as the campaign progressed that she had the makings of an extraordinary person. When I saw her question Mark Zuckerberg once she had been in office awhile, my jaw went to the floor because Mark is super bright and she managed to make him look like he had no mental clarity at all wrt to running political ads.
Her politics may well be too far left for Americans to accept, and I agree that she's very inexperienced, but the YouTube comments from other nations were amazingly positive. Someone from Switzerland said that in Switzerland she would be centrist even though the Swiss are very capitalistic. Someone else said she is our Jacinda Ardern. I don't think Jacinda could ever be taken seriously in America, though.
