DNC Chair Accidentally Lists Hillary Clinton Among GOP Alternatives to Bernie Sanders (Washington Free Beacon)

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) may have committed a Freudian slip Sunday when she named Hillary Clinton at the end of a list of Republican alternatives to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) in the presidential race.

Meet The Press host Chuck Todd had asked Schultz to explain the rise of Sanders, who has drawn huge crowds on the campaign trail and galvanized the left-wing base of the party.

Schultz began by saying any of the Democratic candidates compared to the Republican field were more appealing because they “speak to the issues that are important to the American people.”

“The contrast, whether it’s Bernie Sanders, Jeb Bush, Donald Trump, Mike Huckabee, um, Hillary Clinton, any of that contrast between our candidates and theirs is very clear, and the American people will eventually choose our nominee as president,” she said.
