"If Donald Trump wins, he will change what it means to be a Republican."
Agonized former GWB press secretary Ari Fleischer.
Quoted in "How the G.O.P. Elite Lost Its Voters to Donald Trump"(NYT).
Can you say the equivalent thing about Bernie Sanders and the Democrats? This is absolutely a crisis for the party elite — and beyond the party elite, for elected officials, and for the way people have been raised as Democrats in the power structure for a generation. If Bernie Sanders wins, he will change what it means to be a Democrat.
If not, why not?
