17. I don't see how identity politics fits into this
as "our candidate," seen through the lens of identity politics, suggests that a candidate is from the same group that we identify with; I suppose that many of Sen. Clinton's supporters have been male and that many of Sen. Obama's supporters are not biracial.

I think that you could just say that when a candidate we feel strongly is treated unfairly we feel as if we, ourselves, are being treated unfairly because we identify with the politician who promotes our ideals.
