Let's face it. Hillary's base hates Bernie. They absolutely despise him and blame him and his supporters for her defeat. And the Democratic leadership-- the people who comprise the superdelegates also hate Bernie. A Bernie win will pull the power rug out from under them.
I propose that Joe Biden is the losing candidate the Democratic leadership is pushing to replace the losing candidate, Hillary, they backed in 2016. He will be a reliable corporate, neoliberal, war mongering, pliable tool for the big money. They'll chose a loser over a winner so they, metaphorically, hold onto their deck chairs on the Titanic.
Then there's mediagenic, pretty, fun Beto O'Rourke, evoking memories of JFK. He's a natural for the mainstream media to embrace. You know, the same MSM that stabbed Bernie in the back, with incredibly biased reporting, particularly MSNBC and it's lineup of Hillbots.
Norman Solomon predicts that the media will take to Beto like they took to Trump in this article.
It'll be interesting to see how the Democrats and the MSM screw Bernie.
