The Establishment Takes Aim At Bernie As An Historic Day Looms

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

For the Democratic establishment, the stakes could not be higher and thus that establishment, after Biden's landslide in South Carolina, is not disguising its interests or demands: Sanders must be denied the nomination, and Biden is the only one who can accomplish that. Biden might have won South Carolina without the endorsement of veteran African American Congressman Jim Clyburn. But it was Clyburn's blessing that gave Biden his landslide. And if Biden wins Alabama and other states today, the major factors of his victory will be his South Carolina landslide and his support from African Americans. Should Biden win the nomination, still a long shot, he will be in deep political debt.
