Marnie & I got a good offer on our condo six days after we put it on the market. It came with a lot of strings attached, however, leading me to become quite stressed out. To get my mind off these tense negotiations and the prospect of having to move by Oct. 18 into a house we have not yet found, I flipped on the TV to load up my recording of "Meet The Press," which had aired earlier that day.
I promptly heard John Kerry say this:
"You wouldn't negotiate the sale of your home the way we're negotiating in Iraq. ... You have to create uncertainty. You have to create leverage."
Great, now I'm even more confused. But if I have to be creating uncertainty, maybe that's the point.
