Is Bernie Sanders a serious candidate in the contest to win the Democratic nomination for President? I do not mean to ask whether his policies are serious or whether he has the proper demeanor or necessary qualifications to hold the office. We know that his policies, which can be boiled down to a two-part platform of “Free Stuff for Everyone” and “Throw the Fatcats in Prison,” are fundamentally unserious. We know his demeanor is a little crazy but that he does meet the basic Constitutional requirements to hold the office of President.
