DNC chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz can't differentiate in Socialist v. Democrat

That's about right ...

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, couldn't explain the difference between a socialist and a democrat during a nationally televised interview – and when asked the same question in a second, later TV spot, similarly stumbled.

She was first asked point-blank by Chris Matthews on MSNBC: "What's the difference between a Democrat and a socialist. I used to think there was a big difference. What do you think it is?"

As Mediaite pointed, she tried to dodge the question before then diverting to the bigger chasm
between Democrats and Republicans.

A few days later, NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd posed the same question to her, and once more, Wasserman Schultz couldn't explain.

Todd asked: "Given that Bernie Sanders is an unabashed socialist and believes in social democratic governments, [he] likes the ones in Europe, what is the difference? Can you explain the difference?"

And Wasserman Schultz's reply: "You know, Chuck, it's always fun to be interviewed by Chris Matthews and I know that he enjoys that banter. The important distinction that I think we are going to be discussing, I'm confident we'll be discussing during this campaign, is the difference between Democrats and Republicans."

She then went on to define the Democrats as for-the-people and the Republicans as extremists.
