    Is he the voice of reason here? Will they follow his advice? Or is the progressive wave just too strong?

    He is a corporativist as bad as any of the other neolibs like Clinton and Biden. Now we have the new generation of Deval Patrick, Mayor Pete. He continued on the merry way of spending American lives and dollars in the same vein as bush and cheney, so that corporate America could make profits.

    No it's not the voice of reason... he's basically telling them to lie, deceit.. don't be truthful about what you really stand for... pretend to be centrists until you get the votes you need

    Leftists will not listen. They're too blinded by their own hatred.

    Yup, Gruber them. They’ll fall for it hook, line and sinker.

    You mean Obama, the guy who openly supported BLM and invited them to the White House?

    That guy is in no position to call out left wing extremists.

    As said above, it's simply a tactical move because he's (rightfully) worried that they'll alienate centrists and lose the election because of that.

    But that ship has sailed long ago. If you vote Democrat, you're not a centrist.
