8. Many do, and he knows it.

At least now he does. He went through some serious depression after he was railroaded out. He couldn't believe he was sacrificed by his fellow Senators for pure convenience, especially for something he had not done (spare me the "eight women came forward" stock phrases from Fox Noise). He can't see himself serving alongside those same people, unable to rid himself of the notion that they'd do it again, no matter how much he still wants to be a Senator.

Some Senators have apologized (profusely) in private, but not in public. One, in particular, has cynically tried to pretend to do so for purely financial reasons, was caught trying to take advantage of it, and that made him even more furious. Don't ask which one. I found that out off the record in Washington last week, but the source is unimpeachable, and people who were there in the State in question at the time know it, too. Refuse to believe it if that makes you feel better.
