Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In other words, he  accidentally told the truth again.
According to an early donor list mistakenly attached to a invitation to Biden's first fundraiser in Philadelphia on April 25, the event raised tens of thousands of dollars from employees and family members of attorneys at the law firm Cozen O'Connor. The firm specializes in labor disputes, including helping employers "prepare for and respond to picket lines, strikes, lockouts, and other economic campaigns," as well as to "avoid unionization through positive employee relations." Cozen O'Connor's website notes that the firm's attorneys "manage labor relations with a clear eye toward the bottom line."

Of the $70,150 that had been pledged to Biden's campaign at the time the list was released, $46,850 came from checks signed by Cozen O'Connor employees and their family members.

Biden is gonna raise a ton of money and the msm polls will continue to show him as a front runner.

This is all very well whilst everybody is in the fake kumbaya phase where they're all going "we're not gonna have a negative camapign and we're not gonna attack fellow democrats".

But that can't last and Biden's DINO positions are gonna go nowhere

It's not really a matter of negative campaigning. Look at the first google hit for Biden 2020.
His problem is that he only was VP because his record calmed down both the racists and the finance guys worried about Obama. Yet Obama isn't on the stage to do the talking for him. That leaves him with what?

Clinton couldn't have won the coming Primary either. Everybody under 45 is swinging left, the corporate Dems are yesterday's news.

DLC and Clinton factions, to the small extent they are different, are absolutely terrified of the shift to the left within the party since this is reducing their political power and the flow of one-percenter cash.

Yup, they are highly paid to provide a bulwark against any real change happening to their cozy arrangement to keep America in a state of permanent war, something they could not afford were it not for the petrodollar hegemony, which may be on its last legs if the new wave of multi-culti democrats gain any traction towards a renewables new deal.
A highly profitable status quo is absolutely not to be disturbed, and they will kill anyone in their way if necessary.
Lip service to change, such as provided by Joe Biden for example is all they have, and honestly I believe they'd rather lose again to Trump than give up their cash cows by letting these mouthy youngsters - women no less!- get any closer to the levers of power.
Trump is actually closer to them ideologically than is Sanders, notwithstanding his base rabble hellbent on making libruls the new Jews, along with Muslims and Mexicans.
Upstart populist dreamers like AOC Must. Be. Slapped. Down. Hard. Now.
