This Wednesday Political Thread The Establishment Versus Sanders

Democrats embrace Biden as Sanders hopes for a big Super Tuesday delegate haul

In the greater scheme of things, I just want Trump to lose his re-election.  In a dream world, it would be to Sanders.  It’s becoming increasingly clear, the other democratic candidates want the opposite. A cynical person would say that they just want a candidate to beat Trump.  A bigger cynic would say it’s because they themselves don’t support the programs Bernie is advocating.  We live in a country where most people in government are wealthy, successful, and well educated.  These are people who have always had healthcare. They are not struggling and most of them never had.  They are mostly not minorities.  Women are still considered a fraction of Congress.   Do you they want to the status quo to be disrupted? What’s in it for them?
