Is this the text book definition of political waffling?

Have you heard the latest on Idaho Sen. Larry Craig? Now he's thinking about not resigning.

Agriculture, Idaho and the West will certainly suffer from losing the clout Craig used to have in the Senate, but if he rescinds his resignation, his effectiveness will be shot.

If he want to be a Senator, he should resign as announced, deal with his legal troubles and run for Senate in 2008. If Idahoans are ready to forgive him, they can elect him anew, after this scandal has subsided. But he is of no use to Idaho, agriculture or the West now. He didn't even show up for the Senate's return to work today, and it's not known if he's going to return to Washington at all for work this week.
