Chris Matthews: Democrats Believe In "Interventions" In Markets, "Not Getting Rid Of The Market"


Chris Matthews, who accidentally stumped the head of the Democratic Party on Thursday with a softball question about the difference between Socialism and the U.S. Democratic Party, explains what she should have said.

CHRIS MATTHEWS: It is always harder to explain being a liberal or a progressive, it is a lot harder than being a right wing or a left wing. You're actually somewhere center-left, and it is a little bit harder to define. It is about a record in this country for 200 years of being for Social Security, Medicare, Civil rights. It is about interventions in the market, but not getting rid of the markets.

[Democrats] accept the power and the efficiency of the capitalist system.

Socialists do not, there is a fundamental difference.
