The biggest takeaway from Super Tuesday is that Democrats are wanting to focus the 2020 election on how to beat President Donald Trump, and not each other.

During months of months of tedious and fractious debates — the first required two forums to accommodate 20 candidates was in late June of last year — voters had a right to worry that Republicans were enjoying the dissent among Democrats just a wee too much.

That’s fair. Democrats were no better when the Republicans’ unwieldy 2016 campaign fielded 17 candidates in its early days.
