In my post, I was not arguing the case for Bernie against Hillary. I have done that elsewhere. I was trying to explain why Clinton does dramatically better in the African-American community of Democratic Party voters than he does. My answer was, rather simplemindedly, that her location on the political spectrum is closer to the center of that community than his is. This is true regardless of her history or that of her husband [or of Bernie.]
I continue to think that his campaign is valuable even though he will lose, because it is reawakening the left wing of the Democratic Party. Indeed, if he chooses, as I dearly hope, to transform his campaign into a permanent movement, he has the potential to transform American politics and the Democratic Party. For that reason, I shall continue to donate to his campaign until, very soon, I hit the $2,700 limit.
