Why is AOC so prominent in Democratic Party politics? The Party wants to put AOC front and center. She is far left, and the far left lost the primary with Sanders losing to Biden. The dynamics show the far left is like the far right…out of sync and lost in ideology.
So, what is the deal with AOC?
“As Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s star rises in the Democratic Party, all eyes are on how the progressive powerhouse will influence the 2020 platform — and with it the prospects of Joe Biden at the top of the ticket.
The New York Democrat endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic presidential primary, becoming one of his most vocal and prominent surrogates. She also frequently criticized Biden, the former vice president, as overly centrist, saying in January that the two would be in different political parties ‘in any other country.’” The Hill
If Biden and AOC are in two different political parties “in any other country” then why let AOC come front and center?
Biden needs to keep the left happy, he needs to keep the left in a voting mood for Biden.
AOC is good looking, she is a media star, and she makes headlines. Therefore, unlike any other liberal she is the “star” necessary for a public relations campaign to win over the left, keep them in Biden’s corner and have a broad enough base support to win in November.
AOC is the perfect face to put on the Biden campaign to win…after all,
The real goal for Democrats is to beat Donald Trump. And even though there are more qualified liberals to help lead that campaign they do not, for now, have AOC’s media appeal.

All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.
