And yet he stands up to what he believes in more than any other politician. Guess we have a different definition of "backbone."

Default Can you see Bernie Sanders as commander-in-chief?

Yes, but it won't happen.

With my eyes open I don't see it yet.

Let me try and close my eyes.

Still not seeing it. No matter how hard I try my imagination just can't seem to get there.
If he wants to be the democrat's front runner he is going to have to learn to lie and deceive better. Helping to fund, support and protect ISIS works even better.

I think the recent focus on the military and ISIS will not serve him well. His status as a CO makes it difficult for me to see him sending men into battle, IF it comes to that.

When the focus is strictly on the middle class, I can certainly see it.

I think he has enough decency to not send other people's sons, brothers, lovers, boyfriends to useless wars. For this reason alone, yes, I can see him being the commander-in-chief.

My boyfriend is currently serving in the Marine Corps, brother is a Marine veteran, all my good friends are in the Marine Corps. No hawks would get my vote, that is for damn sure.

Well, seeing that the military personnel purportedly has no respect of President Obama, it will simply be a status quo.

But really, Larry David, would be an awesome Commander-in-Chief, along with his Rear Admiral, Jerry Seinfeld.

Given that the old loon blames Islamic terror on the weather, no, he doesn't have what it takes to be C-in-C. He's as much of a coward in dealing with Islamic terror as the appeaser-in-chief we have now. Maybe we should send him to Gitmo to talk about the weather with some young men there.

The good commander responds swiftly to attack. The good commander doesn't boast, brag, or threaten, but performs.

The good commander is always looking down the road to the consequences of current actions.

The good commander ensures that military forces are sufficient for a mission, with sufficient supplies

The good commander is honest.

Considered in the role as Commander in Chief, most of these candidates make lousy Commander in Chief. They lack the character, the knowledge, and the skills to do the job.

Bernie is one of the good ones, he is not perfect, but he is all right, C+

Bernie Sanders voted against the Iraq War, and believes that while military force is sometimes needed, it should always be the absolute last resort. Bernie’s commitment to stopping unnecessary bloodshed is matched by his commitment to taking care of our over 20 million military veterans and their families. He served as Chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, and received the 2015 Congressional Award from the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), who said: “It is no understatement to say that Bernie has truly taken care of wounded, ill, and injured veterans and their surviving family members.”

Bernie Sanders on Military and Veterans

Commander-in-chief, yes, president? we will just have to wait and see.
