Kennedy School of Government, on the campus of Harvard University, in Cambridge, Mass. During her turn as moderator in last week's 2020 Democratic primary debates, Maddow briefly scuffled with Bernie Sanders and, with Pete Buttigieg, induced the campaign rarity of a politician admitting to a failure. But she didn't put to rest the issue of whether NBC News was wise to include the host of MSNBC's most popular opinion show as a questioner. (AP Photo/Steven Senne, File) Steven Senne—AP
