The surprise overwhelming win by Bernie Sanders in the Washington State Democratic caucus was due, I surmise, to the participation of young people who had never before gotten involved. I know in my precinct there were a surprising number of young people I had never seen before. I am eager to see hard data about whether my theory is true.
Regardless of whether Bernie wins the nomination, we need these young people to reinvigorate the party and push it to the left. This is the sort of peaceful political revolution that Bernie Sanders has been calling for.
Angry conservatives take over the GOP. Angry progressives too often flee the Democratic Party. This election represents a chance to fix that fundamental flaw in liberal politics in America.
