During CNN’s primary coverage on Tuesday, CNN Senior Political Commentator and former Barack Obama adviser David Axelrod stated that we now know how the race for the Democrat nomination between Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders and gaffe-prone frontrunner Joe Biden is going to end.
“Look, we know how this race is going to end now,” Axelrod said. “We just don’t know when. And Bernie Sanders will have a lot to say about that, and he needs to consider these factors. Because these primaries are going to be stretched out now in ways that we don’t even know…
“So, the question for Senator Sanders is, does it benefit the project of defeating President Trump for him to stay in this race simply to make a statement, or is it time to consolidate around Biden?”
Once again the Democrat establishment expects Bernie to take one for the team by consolidating around a candidate they believe can beat Trump. It didn’t work in 2016 and it won’t work in 2020.
