Sanders is bad on detail, but he has what Hillary lacks: the spirit of protest

But at a recent meeting with the editorial board of the New York Daily News Sanders could not put forth any coherent specifics on how he would go about breaking up the big banks – one of the demands he’s most associated with in the public consciousness. He wasn’t sure whether the Fed had the power do it or Congress, where the legal authority resided.

.. Not that the fuzziness mattered to Sanders supporters. His devoted following, mostly white and young, will remain steadfast to the end. Their loyalty to him is reminiscent of the Donald Trump supporters who don’t seem to care whether anything that comes out of his mouth is based on fact.

.. When Sanders talks about economic inequality and the 1%, the rallying cry of Occupy, he uses morally charged terms to describe them. This language is central to his appeal.
