"An Extended Argument Against the Political Far Left"

"Obama lays out the predicate in detail, because it's the most important premise of his argument. Bernie Sanders has argued that 'it's too late for Establishment politics'— that progress is too meager to be worth continuing, and that a radical new course, a metaphorical 'revolution,' is required to truly make a difference. Though he wouldn't embrace a loaded term, Obama is making the case that the dreaded 'Establishment politics' is working."

Jonathan Chait at New York calls President Obama's Howard University commencement address "an extended argument against the political far left."
