Kerry Will Accept Nomination at Convention
On the one had, delaying his acceptance would have allowed Kerry to raise more money, but it is like that bad publicity from doing so would outweigh the fundraising benefits. It would do a lot to neutralize the Democrats' desired image as the Party for ordinary people, because Kerry would get, fairly or not, blasted for being so concerned with money and it would feed the perception of Kerry as an unprincipled opportunist that the Bush campaign is trying so hard to create. In short, we'd be doing Karl Rove's work for him. At any rate, this whole Hamlet bit about to accept or not to accept the nomination doesn't really matter. I doubt if most voters are even vaguely aware of it and those that are will probably forget about it in a day or two.
