3. Cindy would describe her meeting with him honestly.
She has already described her first meeting with * honestly.

She would definitely get more news coverage, and perhaps more of a chance to explain her position to the public after meeting with him.

And if he does meet with her, he has caved. * never apologizes or admits he was wrong. He perceives this as a sign of weakness. He would be weakened in his own mind, and it would show. And at least a few pundits would call him weak and vacillating.

We could counter the spin by saying that that the Resolute Resident has wavered by agreeing to her demands. And we could clamor for more of these types of meetings. If he met with her, why isn't he meeting with people whose jobs have been outsourced? Why isn't he meeting one-on-one with September 11th families who have gotten few answers? Why isn't he meeting with groups of disabled veterans who are getting the run-around over pay and medical care? More people with grievances could camp out on his doorstep and insist on answers. We could answer the spin with lots of protest and lots of noise.
