Biden is the candidate that would appeal to moderates. Whether Bernie will run due to his health is now questionable. The Ukraine connection was already under investigation for their known part in the "Russian collusion" scam. The new Ukrainian President ran on going after corruption and Biden and his son's connection came to the surface. Biden's publicized comment gives it even more weight. Going after Trump on the basis of his call to the President opened the door wide for his accusations. I agree that he'd be smarter to refrain from them but at this point I suppose his anger gets the best of him.
In my opinion, the difference between the Hunter Biden connection and Trump's boys are that they aren't doing anything that they haven't been groomed to do and doing long before Trump became a candidate. It was well known that the Trump Organization was engaged in world-wide businesses when elected. They are not supposed to be seeking new businesses but are not restrained on handling those they already have.
Hunter Biden's history is less stellar. He was discharged from the Naval reserve in 2014 for cocaine use and began his career on the Board of the Ukrainian company the same year. He had no experience in the companies field nor with the country itself. His salary of reported $50K per month exorbitant for someone with no background. It smacks of quid pro quo given Biden's position in overseeing the Ukraine and at the very least a conflict of interest.
