Former US President Barack Obama drove against the opinion that Democrats require to elect a proper candidate belongs from a certain gender or race to beat the US President Donald Trump in 2020.
Obama measured the choice about facing Democrats in a widening online audio interview with his former top strategist David Axelrod at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics. Axelrod is a director and commentator of the institute.
While Obama was questioned about those individuals who think the party can commit a mistake in the selection of another woman or candidate of colour as their presidential nominee, Obama responded, “That kind of stuff, I don’t buy. ”
Obama said, “With respect to going forward, the idea that there’s some demographic or profile of a particular candidate that is the optimal one or the ideal one, that’s just not how I’ve seen politics work. I think people respond to candidates who speak to the moment in some fashion. ”
Neither Axelrod nor Obama referred any names, but a number of the potential rival of White House have measured with their thoughts on the flawless profile for a democratic candidate – even before the 2018 midterm elections had ended.
In an interview with Time Magazine Attorney Michael Avenatti said in the last month he believes a white man would get the best chance to win.
Avenatti who is mixing a White House bid said, “I think it better be a white male. When you have a white male making the arguments, they carry more weight. … Should they carry more weight? Absolutely not. But do they? Yes. ”
