Yes, it’s fashionable for politicos to cite “The Art of War” and argue for sometimes attacking an opponent where they don’t expect it.  But it’s not always smart.  To wit, in the New York Mayor’s race attacking Bloomberg on education elicits this response, which will likely have the same effect it did four years ago:

“The issue for voters really is clear,” Mr. Bloomberg said after a ceremony marking the opening of the new Museum of Chinese in America. “If you think the schools are better today than they were under my opponent’s leadership, then you should vote for me. And if you think that they were better when he ran the Board of Education, then you should vote for him.”
