compared to the vicious and viciously dishonest attacks during the Republican 2016 primary. That perspective offered struck me as spot on.

We may not admire ourselves most as we look at our responses to debates, but the comparison between what their voters want and accept and what Democraticvoters want to see is amazing. Our big drama was about Sanders's denial that he told her a woman wouldn't be elected this time. That's our version of a big deal. He didn't accuse her of involvement in the Kennedy assassination or demand she resign from the senate for missing votes while campaigning, and she didn't ask him about his hawking of fake cancer cures or plan to deport 11 million people. And neither used their time for what they really came for: to hawk their books.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
