A week ago, Biden was roadkill on the political interstate. He is now in a two-man race with Sanders and the reason Trump is now snorting Rolaids. And in Biden’s triumphant Super Tuesday, that selfless believer was Pete Buttigieg. When the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and presidential candidate, dropped out of the Democratic race by Monday — and quickly endorsed Biden — he reshaped the story in the same way Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman did in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Buttigieg, who is 38 and speaks at least six languages, understood the lingua franca of moral responsibility when he stepped aside. He did what we almost never see in politics these days. He put country above party by putting party above himself.
