Barack is going to have to do this sort of conciliatory Kabuki dance, lest the outrage over the cheat become too great and actually put his movement’s legacy in danger. It’s cooling out the mark.
To Barack, yes it’s all about him... but that’s an illusion. It’s not all about him and those who use him know it’s not all about him.
I think he will go down on the ash heap of history.
I just hope he doesn’t take us all with him.
