I think what Lessig said was:

As I watched the campaign, this fact convinced me that she didn’t care about reform — really. Even though her platform on this issue was the most progressive of any major candidate, including Sanders, the fact that she could never make it central to her message convinced me she either didn’t see it or didn’t care about it.

That’s not the claim that “Hillary’s platform was more progressive than Bernie’s.” And thus I hope that’s evidence that he’s not “lost his mind.”
