VIDEO: Nancy Pelosi Can’t Name The Leader Of The Democratic Party

Yesterday, a Harvard-Harris poll showed the full scope of the Democratic leadership vacuum. A plurality of people said “no one” was currently leading the party, while two of the politicians who received large percentages were Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, both retired.

Now it appears that this inability to name actual, current leaders doesn’t just plague rank and file Democrats, but their Congressional leaders as well. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was asked by Anderson Cooper who the leader of the Democratic Party was. While that should be an easy question for someone like Pelosi, it stumped her, as she could not name anyone but Obama and Clinton:

Pelosi’s embarrassing answer captures fully the fact that Democrats are out of power to a degree not seen in decades. They have no fresh ideas, so it only follows that the only leaders Pelosi can think of are has-beens as well.
