  • Pete Buttigieg tells US Democrats that he used to campaign for a “young man with a funny name”.
  • Take your pick, then, as to the shock of the year: his surge towards the Democratic presidential nomination, or the staying power of Joe Biden, maladroit, visibly aged but somehow still leading.
  • The correction is likelier under a president Warren than a president Biden or Buttigieg.
