Congratulations, Michael! Nice piece, although I disagree about the relative lack of mutual hate within the Democratic Party. I'm seeing signs of that in a lot of places, particularly after the last debate, among Yglesias, Talkleft and TPM commenters to name just a few sites I've wandered through the last couple of days.
As for the candidates themselves, When David Letterman asked how the three of them got alonga couple of nights ago, he replied: "How do we get along? We can’t stand each other."
