Bernie Sanders, Movement Politics, & Changing the Wind

Whatever the final outcome of the Democratic primary, the contest between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders has served to highlight two rather different philosophies of political change. Indeed, many Hillary supporters often have been heard to say things along the lines of “I like Bernie’s ideas, but I just don’t think they’re realistic.
