Klobuchar talked about how voters might sometimes be inclined to vote for the person who is telegenic or charismatic over the person who would do the best job. That is in part a symptom of the very, very open primary system we have in America. In most other countries, people inside the party choose who the party leaders will be, and studies show that that results in better representation of women and more of a focus on experience and loyalty to party. Ironically, when Klobuchar mentioned Pelosi as a woman who beats Trump every day, she mentioned a leader who is chosen by party insiders (House members) and not the broader public.
