Are the DNC debates just about attacking the frontrunner?

Update:

I mean... can't they just actually debate the issues themselves instead of attacking other candidates

    Some see that as a valid strategy to get voter recognition and move up in the poles.

    It's like that stupid clayanimation shorts called Celebrity Death Match. No purpose to it at all except to garner ratings.

    The news media ask ignorant gotcha questions while the candidates try desperately to create a memorable soundbite. Thats all that happens. I dont even bother watching them anymore knowing full well that if anything of note occurred it would be all over the news the next day so why waste my time.

    Usually, whichever candidate is in the lead can expect some criticism from the other candidates.  At least they didn't call each other juvenile nicknames or compare size of hands or talk about who had the best looking spouse, like at the 2016 Republican debates.

    Attacking ones opponents on policy issues is normal politics -- attacking Trump for his actions, is something ,that all patriotic Americans ,ought to be doing whatever their politics .

    And yet no one pushed Biden about Ukraine and they even chastised the moderator for bringing it up. Strange that.

    Mostly it's a TV race.

    Like a sport, for the official contenders, only.
