HRC is part of the Establishment, as is Bernie Sanders. Each has their own histories. HRC has been closer to the levers of power. So she's had to compromise more. If Sanders gets the top job, he will compromise too, or -- more gridlock. Probably a lot of gridlock either way.
As an American citizen, you are also part of the Establishment. Esp in relation to people from other parts of the world. Something all Americans should be aware of. Degree of Establishment-ness is a function of how close you are to the center of power. As an American, you're pretty close.
