WATCH: CNN Analyst: Not Sure It's Right Time For Dems To Nominate A White Man

In a comment that's caused a stir online and inspired coverage by numerous outlets — including Mediaite, who predicted it's going to just be more fodder for "aggrieved White Men" prone to "yelling about the horrors of 'identity politics"' — CNN analyst Harry Enten of FiveThirtyEight suggested during his "2020 Power Rankings for Potential Dem Contenders" on CNN Thursday that it was probably not the best time for Democrats to nominate a white male candidate.

Asked by host John Berman to present FiveThirtyEight's top ten Democrat contenders for the 2020 election, Enten opted for the Casey Kasem approach and counted down from ten. Holding the not-so-coveted tenth spot is New York's Sen. Kirsten Gillbrand, who Enten said "has a number of things going for her," including New York's powerful media market, "the most anti-Trump record of any United States senator," and being a woman.

"Keep in mind that women won in record numbers in 2018 Democratic primaries," he noted. "That being said, she has a number of flaws. For instance, she came out first against Al Franken, which a lot of progressives hold against her."

Ms Gillabrand is supposed to stand for women but bows down to special interest how convenient.

What Soros and other white democrat billionaires tell her to do she does.

This is the Dems' main problem, they choose their leadership not by qualification, but by identity fluff.

I, for one, am all for this continuous failure idea.
