Top reason why establishment is insistent on Hillary not Bernie

Obviously the establishment is comprised of millionaires that want to keep their jobs and comfortable incomes, and avoid high taxes for high income brackets, but they also want to keep aggressive, hawkish foreign policy, and they also do not want popular democracy to grow in power in the U.S.

So of these four reasons, what do YOU think is the most important reason that the establishment has been pulling out all stops for Hillary?

Most of that money she's been "tirelessly" raising went to the DNC, and from there to her Victory Fund.
