It's amazing to me to see #mapoli savvy-types claim that @edmarkey 's embrace of @aoc and the #greennewdeal came as some kind of surprise.

Ed and @AOC are kindred spirits, in that they a. make good trouble, and b. are serious about doing the actual work. AOC is *prepared* for hearings. She's conscientious. She makes coalitions, sometimes to the frustration of her leftist fanbase.

IOW, she's serious about power. 2/

That Ed can *also* go inside, mastering details and process, and come out with legislative W's, is what makes him special. 4/
