David Aaron's commentary "Will the Heavyweights Please Suit Up?" (Op-Ed, Dec. 21) is an insult to both the candidates as well as to those Democrats who choose not to run for President in 1988. It seems to me that it is the right of any person to run or not to run. For those who do not, let us take them at their word and leave them alone. I'm tired of hearing people goad such men as Sen. Bill Bradley and Gov. Mario Cuomo to run for President. If they don't want to do it, that's fine with me. There are enough candidates to sort out as it is.
I think as far as those who are running are concerned, having watched several of the "debates" as well as individual interviews , that the selection of Democratic candidates as it now stands is fine. We do have a good choice between men who, in spite of what has been alleged, do have differences between them but not so many as to provide the fuel for a split in the party. And if Gary Hart can add either some fuel to fire up the others--or prove to be a viable candidate himself--then that's even better.
