The cynical side of me believes that a deal was probably struck in the form of a job offer once she becomes president. I find it hard to believe that a man would allow himself to be used in this manner, but level of intelligence may be a factor, or in some way, his personal tragedy may have, as they say, “driven him off the rails.” I know nothing of the man. These are just personal observations.
But the incident does tell us to be watchful. I was particularly disappointed when a favorite legislator, Elizabeth Warren, appeared to have abandoned what seemed to be synergy with Bernie Sanders, to support instead a candidate with a history of opportunist activity within her job, and with whom she has not much commonality other than being a woman. It would be great if the two Senators could continue work amiably in the new Senate, but I would not blame Sanders if he were a bit distrustful after experiencing Warren’s decision to support the Clinton camp.
