Your putting it another way didn't help.. because help or elaboration wasn't needed. We agree. I just think that VA would prefer their next meeting asap.. while his recent victory is still.. recent. While he has the feeling of knowing how it needs to be done. The further into the future their next meeting is, the further in the past this victory will be. I think he feels prepared now.. to use your quotes (if not for minor injuries). And that is also one reason why I think his withdrawal had nothing to do with this. Another reason is just that it isn't how VA is.
