If Dem > HRC can't Dem beat a Republican who is going to get crushed by HRC? Or is this like college football, where transitivity does not apply: Team A beat Team B, Team B beat Team C, therefore Team A is better Team C (false)

I just don't understand why Hillary supporters are afraid of a challenge from a progressive candidate.
