It's what happened after the debate between six Democrat candidates in Iowa that makes the most headlines.

Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic frontrunner, accepted challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders’ apology late Monday over a blistering op-ed written by an unofficial campaign surrogate who blasted the former vice president as a weak candidate with a serious corruption problem.

Zephyr Teachout, a Fordham Law professor, wrote the column for the Guardian that could be used as a roadmap for President Trump's re-election team in the general election. She described a candidate happy to be called "Middle-Class Joe," but whose political career is a bit murkier. She wrote he has a long history of supporting "finance over working-class Americans."

Teachout, who has officially endorsed Sanders, went on to write that nominating a candidate like Biden would make it more difficult to defeat Trump. She said it would allow Trump to "muddy the water, to once again pretend he is the one "draining the swamp."' She said Biden’s record illustrates the "grossly corrupt culture in Washington that long precedes Trump."
