“Bernie is almost not a person, he is an IDEA.

To use a fancy modern term he is a MEME.

He is a viral idea.

And that viral idea is very central to the concerns of the American people.

He has managed to connect up the idea that:

  • people’s wages are not advancing;
  • that the real income has not increased in the middle class in 25 years;
  • along with the idea that there is a corrupt political system based in Wall Street and corporate money and PACs. . .

. . . And that the very symbol and essence of all of that is Hillary Rodham Clinton.”
