AOC’s DNC speech was 60 seconds. She made her point — but so did the establishment.

If Democrats want to move forward after this immediate emergency of an election, they need to radically reassess who holds the party’s power and who speaks on its platforms.On Night 2, the convention opened with a mashup of the Democratic Party’s young luminaries, a group of recently elected under-50s across the country, including the woman who should be governor of Georgia, Stacey Abrams. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York spoke for only 60 seconds — the amount of time allotted all nomination speeches — but she made the most of them, highlighting the parts of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ platform that are most important to his (and Ocasio-Cortez’s) progressive constituency.
