Manchin continued to pitch his pitch. “Americans want to be united, Americans want to be together, and right now we’re going further apart.” He offered “you can’t look at the other side and say ‘it’s always their fault,'” Also, be sure to mention “now if they want to go down and play that, then the people are basically going to be looking for something, or somebody.”
Manchin was just about to offer himself up, it seemed. “somebody,” He explained “I’m not saying whether that’s me, or somebody else, or whether that could be so many people that have tried to work in the middle.”
Manchin was even more forceful in his condemnation of partisanship, particularly when it comes down to the people “who have been forced to take a side,” Who “are pretty moderate, centrist people, but they gotta play the game on the far-right or maybe go to the base of the far-left, thinking that’s where their support’s gonna come from.”
The senator who represents one the most conservative states in America made it clear that he doesn’t agree with the idea of a federal government. “never thought that, and I’ve never played that, and there’s a lotta people like me, I think, that’ll come to that middle and if we can bring them together and find out if there’s a need, we’ll just see.” Manchin did indeed add, as telling as this tease may sound “I think there’s a lot of different players in the game, I really do.”
