He who hesitates


Yahoo has a piece on McCain's meeting with Sheehan. McCain stuck to his guns; Sheehan came out name-calling as she usually does.

Captain's Quarters spins it as a defeat for McCain, on the grounds that McCain delayed his announcement of this meething to the press until after the print editions ran.

If I were in KausFiles mode (and I suppose this past couple of days I have been) I'd say that McCain could have used this meeting to shore up his centre-right. He was looking like a brave and principled man, for a minute.

But now that we know that McCain delayed the announcement, he now looks like someone who didn't get what he expected - in short, like a "a rank opportunist", and a clumsy one.
