    He doesn't want flame wars over who is the better choice, because that's extremely annoying.

    But to ban any and all discussion of primary candidates' relative merits kind of undermines the very purpose of DKE.

      If we can talk about this race in terms of the horserace, then I'm fine with it. I mean, I'm certainly gonna write up polls, etc., like I just did today. But people have to not personalize this thing, and definitely I don't want to see any retread flame wars about whether so and so should have been picked, or so and so shouldn't have run, etc. That discussion is absolutely settled. There's a primary next year, and our job is to analyze it, not grouse about whether it should or shouldn't be taking place.
