Is a question that asks to estimate the level of political expertise or political talent of a political leader of the past or present necessarily so opinion-based that it must be put on hold?
What if, in some context on Politics Stack Exchange, some people are motivated to inquire about the political expertise of participants on Politics Stack Exchange? Should such inquiries also be put on hold, to prevent answers from being posted, regardless of whether the inquiries occur in a Question thread, or in a comment or chat?
Is Politics Stack Exchange reputation a meaningful and real indication of political expertise?
Why can't voters in the USA figure out a way to attract political candidates to a venue like Politics Stack Exchange, but one having participation restricted to people who are officially declared candidates for political leadership? In that case, the political expertise estimates -- previously too opinion-based to be a key part of a question -- would become reputation numbers that are easily accessible, and no longer a mystery.
