Debbie Wasserman Schultz still can't explain the difference between a socialist and a Democrat

After embarrassing herself a few days ago by being dumbfounded when MSNBC host Chris Matthews asked her to explain the difference between a Democrat and a socialist, the chair of the Democratic National Committee had plenty of time to think about an answer.  Yet, when Chuck Todd asked her the same question and played back her embarrassing response to Matthews, once again she avoided an answer, instead deflecting her comments to the difference between Democrats and Republicans.

Watch the exchange:


The obvious conclusion is that there is no difference between a Democrat and a socialist.  DWS obviously realizes that to draw a distinction would alienate a substantial portion of her party’s base.
