JOHN KERRY has given up on the idea of delaying his acceptance of the Democratic nomination. Is this a flip, or a flop?

The delay idea was certainly a flop, anyway. And all it’s accomplished is to make him look both tricky and indecisive. Seems like a bad move to me.

Kerry’s striking a noble pose: “”The decision that I made today raises the bar.”

So by doing exactly what he’s supposed to do, what he planned to do, and what everyone expected him to, he’s somehow setting a high moral tone?

UPDATE: Delay on the one hand, getting ahead of himself on the other. It evens out, right?
