It's not personal, it's politics

Danny Davis has an opponent in the primary [Why is Davis afraid of open debate, competition? Viewpoints, Jan. 17]. Danny is a politician. The first thing a politician does is challenge the opponents' petitions. If nothing else, you drain some of their resources. Barack Obama, among many others, did this.

If you are an incumbent, especially a long-entrenched incumbent, you don't even consider a debate. If you are an incumbent, you try to avoid even mentioning the name of any opponent. It's politics.

Politics ain't bean bag.
