I think you're giving them too much credit. They've hated Trump's guts since the night he defeated their queen. They've had almost 4 years, yet Bernie and Joe are the best they could come up with? I'm not convinced "looking ahead" is one of the dnc's strengths...I THINK THE DNC IS THROWING BIDEN UNDER THE BUS G. THEY KNOW THEY DONT HAVE ANYONE WHO CAN WIN IN 2020. THEY ARE THINKING AHEAD TO 2024. BIDEN IS JUST THE LAMB THIS GO ROUND. BY 2024, BERNIE MAY NOT BE HERE, BIDEN WILL BE IN PRISON, THEN SOMEONE MAY COME ALONG THAT CAN COMPETE.
