He’s hoping to be known as “the conscience of the party.” Seriously. That’s what wants,
He’s always been the hall monitor, tattle-tale, prissy, boy scout type, but Willard is also infamous for being an underhanded, sneaky, backstabber who would go to extensive, deceptive lengths to hatch plots against his perceived enemies or those he envied or viewed as rivals. I remember Willard secretly funding nasty campaign ads through third parties or dummy corps. (whatever they’re called).
Now that he’s one of one hundred, I think you’re right. He intends to be Mister Righteous. He’ll take delight in faulting President Trump and every other Republican.
That role worked so well for Flake and Kasich.
BTW, Kasich just signed on with a Hollywood talent agency today.
