Here's Hoping There's A Lot Going On Behind the Curtain

There are a lot of influential state Democratic figures in CT who have endorsed Joe. Now that he's made it clear he thinks there's no problem with going indy, I imagine some of these Dems are not happy at all with Joe and want him to honor the results of the primary - and commit publicly to doing so before the primary results are in. That's not an unreasonable assumption, is it?

I wouldn't be surprised if they use their pressure on Joe privately so that it make it easier for Joe to backtrack and pretend he was misunderstood or whatever he want to say in order to save face.

We won't know whether Dems who are mum are going to fight an indy Joe until he actually leaves - but I really hope that a lot of them simply won't tolerate an indy Joe and vow to defeat him. Based on Joe actually saying he'll stay in the party until the primary, it looks like we'll have to wait until August 8th to see everyone's true colors.
