As a member of that demographic, I will offer another possibility — one of wisdom acquired with age. Mr. Sanders has no better chance of defusing the current vitriol and animus that are the daily diet of politics than the current occupant of the Oval Office. In short, with a Sanders presidency, Washington gridlock will be continued, with no easing of present tensions and zero chance of advancing an agenda. Sadly, both Mr. Sanders and Mr. Trump fail this test. I fear that if Mr. Sanders is the Democrats’ nominee in November, the winner will be President Trump.
