Double Secret Reverse Psychology?

This says it all to me:

Democrat John Kerry, the party's presumptive presidential nominee, was still deciding on Sunday whether he would deliver a planned speech to U.S. mayors for which he would have to cross a police officers' picket line.

If it were a question of principle it would all be rather straightforward. But obviously, it's not. John Kerry and his staff of advisors are still trying to figure out whether it would be more advantageous, or at least less harmful, to cross the picket line or not. I'm somewhat surprised it takes so long to wet the tip of your index finger and hold it up into the wind. After all, it only took about three days to change their mind once the idiocy of not accepting the nomination at the Democratic Convention became public knowledge. Then again, maybe this is just a test case to allow John-boy to avoid accepting the nomination this summer in Boston after all so he can keep spending without being subject to limitations on Federal matching funds.

Nah, they're not that clever.

That's the first thing to came to mind when I heard this story. But I don't think he has the cajones to try it.
