The DNC is a “who’s who” of the party, spotlighting its leaders and rising stars. So you’d think, with 17 keynotes to pass around, we’d be hearing from the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Julian Castro, and other diverse, inspiring heavy weights, right? Think again. Julián Castro, who delivered the 2012 keynote, wasn’t in the lineup. And AOC got about 90 seconds of airtime—less than a former GOP governor who got 4 minutes. These legislators have been crucial to pushing the Dem party agenda to the left and activating young voters—but they were largely sidelined at the convention. Instead we mostly got establishment Dems and anti-Trump Republicans.
