While discussing the merits of Howard Dean‘s candidacy to lead the Democratic National Committee, former Bernie Sanders spokesperson and current CNN contributor Symone Sanderscalled for diversity at the top levels of the DNC, and said, “we don’t need white people leading the Democratic party right now.”
Symone Sanders also noted Dean’s criticism of Bernie Sanders and considered it a mark against his bid to lead the democratic party.
Howard Dean is also on record maligning young people and millennials — telling those Bernie folks they just need to get in line — and maligning Bernie Sanders. And that is not what we need.
In my opinion, we don’t need white people leading the Democratic party right now. The Democratic party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff, at the highest levels.
