Why the “dither”?

Obama’s dithering about the decision to send the troops that General McChrystal requested is a way of voting “present”.

One way of approaching a big decision is to dither around until something else happens and makes the decision for you. Then you can say “I had to choose this because that happened”. Obama does not want to make the tough decisions. He wants circumstance or someone else to make them for him so he can continue to campaign. He hopes (that what the hope and change is about) that if he waits long enough the decision will be made for him.
