Looks like Pelosi has assured the owners that, should any progressive candidate win the nomination and go on to win the presidency, any progressive plans will be kneecapped. I think I said somewhere to watch out for the neoliberal head fake when she was made speaker. Sadly, that concern was proven out:

"Former congressional staffers and other critics said that by agreeing to suspend the debt ceiling until 2021, Pelosi gave Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) the ability to extract massive spending cuts and other concessions from a Democratic president in exchange for raising the debt limit."

More of that Neoliberal 3 dimensional chess that always seems to benefit the ownership class and the far right....
