So there’s leaked audio of Clinton talking about Bernie’s supporters. So over/under on this becoming an utter mess? Some of it can defintely be spun badly (but then again anything can) but I feel like this bit was utterly sympathetic:

“Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement,” she said. “They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future.”

Clinton added: “If you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing.”

“I think we all should be really understanding of that,” Clinton said.
