The biggest fight of the night—by far—has been about whether Democratic candidates should accept donations from rich people. Billionaires in particular, and “billionaires in wine caves,” to be super specific about it. (This was Elizabeth Warren’s jab at Pete Buttigieg for his recent big-dollar fundraiser held in an underground wine cellar.)
This is . . . dispiriting. I get that Democratic candidates are mostly going to agree with each other about most things, so you’re not going to see a ton of sniping. But can it really be true that the single most contentious fight among Dems is a debate about fundraising tactics?
