31-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has inspired and emboldened many young voters to not only become more aware of how political races can affect their day-to-day lives, but to also get directly involved with the process. Asked if he believed AOC could one day become POTUS, Obama expressed support for her message and touted the necessity of young voices in the journey toward progress.
"It could," Obama said. "Look, she is a talented politician and public servant. She is charismatic. She, I think, is articulating a vision about what a lot of young people are looking for: a more responsive, equitable economic system. And so, I like seeing the young talent that is starting to come up within the Democratic Party. You need new voices pushing the boundaries of what's possible."
