Add Debbie Wasserman Schultz to the list of Dem politicians running away from Barack Obama. Kind of ironic, no, given that DWS is Chair of the Dem party and President Obama is its standard bearer? On today's Morning Joe, repeatedly pressed by Joe Scarborough as to whether voting for Dem candidates means a continuation of President Obama's policies, Wasserman Schultz refused to answer. Instead, the DNC Chair trotted out shop-worn lines about Obama not being on the ballot, Dems "having your back," etc.
After she departed, Scarborough got in a goodbye shot: "It's ridiculous. People that voted with the president 95, 96, 97, 98% of the time can't say his name."
