A Short Note On The Psychology Of Democratic Elite

Charles Pierce:
The Sanders campaign, and liberal voters in general, seem to be getting on the candidate's [Clinton] last nerve, and I'm not sure I understand why.
Democrats expect to hold the virtuous positions in comparison to their opponents. Republican leaders feed their followers' fear and anger, Democrats feed their followers' sense of virtue.

But Sanders is taking all the virtuous positions in this race and harshing her buzz. Elite Democrats want to win more than they want to be virtuous but they become confused and angered when they don't get their proper due.
