One other thing that should be pointed out is that Kerry has so far made no decision on 
whether or not he will hold off on accepting the nomination.  It's just one of a number of 
options under discussion.

Now, if the final decision is for Kerry to accept the nomination at the convention after all, 
they'll accuse Kerry of waffling.  Moral:  It doesn't pay to be open about your decision 
process.  Be secretive and not tell anyone anything.  Or else, don't consider multiple options 
and scenarios, just go off half-cocked and be stubborn, like Boy George.
