Bernie Sanders, who has attracted numerous young, white,
college-educated supporters in his bid for the presidency, says he is
creating a movement and promises a political revolution. This rhetoric
is an updated version of the “change” promised by the 2008 campaign of
Barack Obama and by Jesse Jackson’s earlier National Rainbow Coalition.
Such Democratic electoral campaigns, at best, raise political
consciousness. But they do not become movements or engender revolutions.
They exist as long as election campaigns endure and then they vanish.
Sanders’ campaign will be no different.
