Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In hindsight it does look like there was a deal. I think the turning point came when she went after Biden and her campaign ended up running into money trouble. Biden was the safe choice for the donors after all. Yet different than Castro, Harris seemed to be the heir apparent with strong institutional support from the Clinton faction so they couldn't just shove her off towards the side. (I think Castro has no speaking slot at the DNC?).

And while the past looks clearer now, the future remains muddy. The pandemic is uncontrolled, the number of rent and mortgage delinquencies are the highest on record, the Post Office is dying. It's difficult to say what the electorate is even going to be in a months time.
