Kerry Considering Delaying Acceptance of Democratic Nomination

Reuters

I like this move, also covered by the AP. The Republican convention, timed to capitalize on September 11th, takes place five weeks after the Democratic convention. Since presidential campaigns receive a fixed amount of money after accepting the nomination, roughly $75 million, Kerry would have proportionately less money to spend.

The move is crass, and kind of obnoxious, but it at least demonstrates that the Kerry campaign is forward thinking, and willing to play hardball.
