Leslie Sanchez and the art of the sound bite

Republican strategist Leslie Sanchez is fast becoming one of my favorite pundits. Much like James Carville, her colleague on the left, she's a master at turning a phrase.

Here's her latest offering, delivered about five minutes ago on Fox News Channel during a discussion about the Democrats' dickering over what to do about their delegate mess in Michigan and Florida:

"Democrats want to run our country's health care system, but they can't run their own primaries."

The comment drew an audible groan from her debate counterpart, and it made me laugh out loud.
