Michael Medved: Democrats Elevate Their Least Likeable Leaders

In the midst of their seemingly endless and unpredictable fight for the 2020 presidential nomination, does it make sense for Democrats to promote some of their least likable Congressional leaders as the new face of their party?

If the Democrat wins, Trump loyalists and anti-Socialists will see it as the byproduct of four years of inquisitions.
