    Yet.

    And she would be a serious nomination, not a joke like Palin.

    Right, you made an inapt comparison.

    At this point, no way. She has a lot to learn.

    Don't we all.

    She has the ability to learn and grow.

    Unlike Palin who remains a childlike ignoramus.

    A woman in politics being photoshopped to a woman in politics being photoshopped. Nothing in common there.

    From last summer: Chris Cuomo interviewed AOC, and here is her response to how to pay for what she wants. WATCH: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Says 'When It Comes to Unlimited War We Seem to Be Able to Invent That Money Very Easily'
    We write unlimited blank checks for war. We just wrote a $2 trillion check for that GOP tax cut and nobody asked those folks how they are going to pay for it…Why is it that our pockets are only empty when it comes to education and health care for our kids? Why are our pockets only empty when we talk about 100 percent renewable energy that is going to save this planet and allow our children to thrive?… We only have empty pockets when it comes to the morally right things to do. When it comes to tax cuts for billionaires and when it comes to unlimited war, we seem to be able to invent that money very easily. To me, it belies a lack of moral priorities that people have right now, especially the Republican Party.

It's extremely difficult for any political party to win more than two terms, which in Australia's case is only 6 years as we have 3 year terms of office.
    Lol. The current right wing government is economically, socially, environmentally and diplomatically incompetent. There are large swaths of the Australian population that will be better off once they are out of office.

    The interesting thing about your comment is that you identify labor as left, I mean they are left of the conservatives, given their rightward lurch of late. But Labor is a centre right party economically.

    Given the current clown show government's joke of a record it's so weird to see people think we'll be worse off without them.
    Once upon a time the Labor governments of Bob Hawke and Paul Keating were center party and Australia benefited greatly. Comparing the present clowns and watermelons and shifty Bill who have sworn to a class war by stating they'll go after the big end of town is truly a sacrilege! You obviously read Fairfax media only and are a devote of the ABC/SBS if you think the present Labor Party are center right economically as well as ideology!
