I’m not questioning at all. I know why they running. It’s all one big audition to America and one another for their next job: a cabinet position or some cushy power appointment. 75% of those people know in every fiber of their being that the chances of them winning the election, let alone the nomination, are as slim as the space between a proton and its orbiting electron(s).
We’ve all seen this movie before . . . angsty maneuvers, betrayals, tears, alliances, tears, broken alliances, harsh words, and the last two who loathe each other? The winner gives the rival time to sufficiently lick their wounds and then the top dog throws #2 a big bone. Everybody’s happy.
