On ABC’s This Week Sunday, White House hopeful and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders distinguished himself from competitor Elizabeth Warren by declaring she is “a capitalist through her bones,” while he is not.

“Business as usual and doing it the old fashion way is not good enough,” he added. “What we need is, in fact — I don’t want to get people to nervous—we need a political revolution.

Warren may not embrace the “socialist” label as proudly as Bernie, but her “you didn’t build that” animus toward entrepreneurs and the rich, and her platform of social justice wealth redistribution marks her as one nonetheless.
