Joe Scarborough: ‘I’ve Seen the Future of the Democratic Party and It’s Mayor Pete’

‘Mayor Pete main streams a Democratic Party much in the same way Nancy Pelosi fights every day to make sure that her House caucus does the same’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SCARBOORUGH: “Well, the reaction to Mayor Pete has been remarkable, especially for a nation that has learned to become very cynical of politicians of all stripes. But you could see the response on Twitter, you could see the response — hear the response from friends and neighbors just like after his announcement and it’s quite unlike anything that I know that you and I have ever seen. You know, as you know, Mika, I only can tell three kind of stories, either baseball stories, Winston Churchill stories or rock ‘N’ roll stories. And looking at mayor Pete last night and once again seeing this remarkable response, I was reminded of one of the most famous lines by any rock critic in music history and that line was “I have seen the future of rock ‘N’ roll and it is Bruce John landow wrote that in ‘73, ‘74. Well, I’ve seen the future of the Democratic Party and it’s mayor Pete. It may not be in 2020, perhaps it’s in 2024 and beyond, but this guy is going to play an important role in the mainstreaming of the Democratic Party for many years to come. And believe you me, that is exactly what he does, regardless of ideology, mayor Pete main streams a Democratic Party much in the same way Nancy Pelosi fights every day to make sure that her house caucus does the same and that Joe Biden’s doing on the campaign trail today.”
