Buttigieg again showed a firm resistance against a trio of detractors and stood up to the pressure well. Biden gave one of his better performances, after some embarrassing moments in recent weeks, but it will be a concern for many Democrats that a second term isn’t likely, should he be successful. The only way the far left Warren and Sanders will get near winning the ticket will be to unify their voter base, and for one of those candidates to drop out of the race.
