It’s better late than never, if he follows through, but this isn’t the
first time Chafee has merely hinted he might quit the ‘Republican’
I like how he acknowledges, mildly, that his loss was good for the
nation. It makes him look bad, but not to acknowledge it
would look even worse.
Now that he has less reason to sell out, maybe he’ll actually do the
party switch and prove himself helpful in some way, though most likely
we’ll seldom hear from him again.
