For some time, I've been thinking about why Senator Bernie Sanders's call for a "political revolution" does not get the response that I think it deserves from the Left. He's right that there's a lot to change in the way American politics functions and that money enjoys an unfair advantage. Indeed, democrats, progressives, and liberals agree.
So, why does Sanders's grand call for a "political revolution" deflate as soon as it is shouted? Why doesn't it invigorate everyone on the Left? For sure, Sanders is not lacking conviction and the veracity of his mantra is acknowledged. Perhaps, not enough people know who he is or understand his ideas. Or, maybe the Democratic establishment is not really interested in a "future we can believe in," to borrow another slogan from Sanders.
