If Progressive DEMs get wind of a Hillaryite/Corporate DEM plan to "Stop Bernie", they'll just fund raise off it and make Bernie even stronger. Since Wall Street and Drug money is toxic in this round, there's not much Corporate DEMs can do.

The Paradox of the Democratic “Stop Bernie” Campaign
https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/04/stop-bernie-sand...

Bernie Sanders’ strong early position for the Democratic nomination is giving powerful Democratic players who dislike him all sorts of feelings, none of them good.

Sanders’ fundraising prowess and base of support have surfaced what the New York Times this week referred to as the “What to Do About Bernie” question. But the Democrats who don’t want to see him win the pennant—a collection of donors, operatives, and national officials who find Sanders’ politics too far left for their personal taste, and presumably the electorate’s—feel boxed in as to how they should respond. If they do nothing to stop Sanders, then they will have done nothing to stop Sanders. But if they put together some coordinated effort to stop him, then Sanders will channel those efforts into his “anti-establishment” messaging.

I noticed that former Virginia Governor and Clinton fundraiser Terry McCauliffe sees the writing on the wall and has decided to not run for President in 2020. It's just not the year for a Wall Street/Drug Money DEM.
