I'm sorry, but there is no such thing as an unconsidered or innocent scheduling conflict in political campaigns. Campaign strategists and advisors meet and discuss daily and in detail the best tactics for winning an election. So, did Bob Clement's Campaign believe that skipping controversial debates makes him more winnable? Of course they did. These guys are seasoned pros at marketing Bob Clement. What voters have to decide is whether those relatively tame and timid moves are causes to question whether Mr. Clement is bold enough to lead this city and daring enough to face challenges that confront him as Mayor.
