For John, BLUF: Yes, it is a Faustian Bargain. Nothing to see here; just move along.
IT says a lot about our relationship with Hillary Clinton that she seems well on her way to becoming Madam President because she’s not getting indicted.And here is how she ends:
We’re resigned to the Clintons focusing on their viability and disregarding the consequences of their heedless actions on others. They’re always offering a Faustian deal. This year’s election bargain: Put up with our iniquities or get Trump’s short fingers on the nuclear button.Well, we have seen them in the White House before, but now they have a better sense of what they can and can't get away with, and that isn't even talking the political side.
The Clintons work hard but don’t play by the rules. Imagine them in the White House with the benefit of low expectations.
