Open Thread

For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Obama thinks his wife should be off-limits during the campaign:

But I do want to say this to the GOP. If they think that they're going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful. Because that I find unacceptable.

Is Obama right? Should spouses and family members be exempt from campaign attacks? Or, if they're going to be out there on the stump, are their words and deeds fair game?

On a related note, Obama seems to want to dictate what things are allowed to be discussed during this campaign, and what's verboten. Isn't this fairly obvious, or are media so in the tank for this guy that they're going to support all of his demands?
