9. For just the reason you said.

 

In a month or two those still thinking the ship isnít sinking will realize it has actually sunk. Sanders has to get them out there as soon as possible after his heart attack. There is no way he wanted to do this until a month or so out from the first vote. This was his momentum builder and his hand was forced.

Now for the squad. It works for them as well. After the ship has sunk they get to maintain their political credibility. Their supporters like seeing this and there is no real downside for them.

It really looks like the move of a savvy career politician and some young guns who know what their supporters want to see.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
