Meet the Sarah Silverman Democrats

By Michael Grunwald/The Politico Magazine Onlinestatic2.politico.com

Florkime Paye is one of those millennial voters who fell hard for Bernie Sanders. She was inspired by his rumpled realness, his sixties activism, his call for a revolution to empower the 99 percent of Americans who don’t have SuperPACs.

As a black woman, a Liberian-American in Minneapolis, she was delighted to hear a candidate give voice to such unapologetically liberal political and racial values. By contrast, Hillary Clinton struck Paye as a conventional poll-tested pol, a calculating cog in the big-money system that Sanders threatened at its core.

So now Sanders wants her to vote for Clinton? The leader of the revolution says she should support a Wall Street-backed creature of Washington, just because Clinton happens to be a Democrat who happens to be facing Donald Trump?
