Fmr Obama Aide: ‘I Think Barack Obama Is Probably Still the Leader of the Democratic Party’

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” former Obama Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations Alyssa Mastromonaco stated, “I think Barack Obama is probably still the leader of the Democratic Party, even though he is sort of on hiatus right now.”

Mastromonaco answered a question on whether Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the leader of the Democratic Party by saying, “Bernie — I mean, I think if you asked Bernie, he would say no. I think, he even said that he wasn’t a Democrat the other day. Tom Perez, I think, you know, he is, — I think Barack Obama is probably still the leader of the Democratic Party, even though he is sort of on hiatus right now. I hope Hillary comes back, but she more than deserves some time out, to sort of regroup. Tom Perez, I heard, is sort of cleaning house at the DNC, and sort of starting from scratch. So, hopefully, this will be — going into 2018, will be a moment where the Democratic Party’s identity crisis is over.”
