Is Advani really sulking?

So, Narendra Modi has at last been named as BJP's prime ministerial candidate. There is no doubt that this has the overwhelming support of its members. Advani is apparently alone in opposing the choice and at any rate the timing of announcement.

Advani is an experienced politician. He knows when he is outwitted. Is he so dumb as to express his 'pique' so transparently? One doubts.

Then what is the drama about? Is the BJP trying to create an impression that Advani is the polar opposite of NaMo and therefore if, post the election, there is a need for offering an alternative, Advani will be put up?

If Advani's tantrums are for real, he is committing political suicide.
