The debacle of a presidential debate on June 27th, 2024, raised a huge question: Why did the Democratic Party prevent a serious, contested presidential primary against Joe Biden? 

It’s a question that our podcast Lever Time dared to explore a while ago, when it was a taboo topic. At the time, we were criticized for even discussing it — even though after the debate, it seems everyone in America is now finally asking the question we had the temerity to ask. 

So we’re re-releasing that original episode of Lever Time here — but with a new updated discussion about what happened at the debate, and why it’s so important.
