If I chose not to choose have I made a choice?
"The Dean" calls the Gov. out for fence sitting.
"Ask him these days about most anything involving a modicum of controversy and his reply may boil down to something like this:
A) "That's an important issue that I'm really concerned about and we'll do something at some point, though I'm not ready to be specific just now." Examples include such things as budget cutting or education changes centered on charter schools and teacher tenure. And that's fair enough; you can't expect a governor to decide everything immediately.
B) "That's an important issue, but I am undecided and, maybe if I remain undecided, it will all be dealt with in legislative arguments and such so that I don't have to ever worry about it."...
...C) "I have a position on that, but it's no big deal. If the Legislature goes the other way I'll go along.""
