Biden had the most to lose on Friday night. For Biden, the debate wasn’t just about reassuring voters; it was also about reassuring Democratic donors, who he’ll need in order to compete after the South Carolina primary. They’re desperate for reassurance because Biden bombed in Iowa, coming in fourth place.
