The party has been way too soft, walking on eggshells about Bernie, and should've gone in hard on him a long time ago.
His hardcore voters hate Dems and will never vote Dem; it doesn't matter if we kiss their asses or not, it's not going to work, and it only emboldens them to keep damaging Biden and the party like they did to Hillary.
The consolidation of rank-and-file Dem voters behind Biden IMO has as much to do with the Bloomberg camp and James Carville 'going hard' on Bernie during the week leading up to SC and Super Tuesday - as it had to do with Clyburn/Pete/Amy endorsements.
After the FL/AZ/IL primaries gave Biden an insurmountable lead, the party should've gone to Bernie and told him to drop out and endorse Biden, and if he failed to do this and instead wanted to make trouble then the party would have no choice but to unleash the oppo book (largely unused) against him and his wife.
Dems have been too soft and it's coming back to bite us - again.
primary today, I would vote for: Joe Biden
