"And tighten a Victorian corset, memorize all those lines, and act in front of an audience for three hours if she wasn't actually going to marry the man pretending to be a millionaire and move to the country estate?"
That was seriously the first reply that came to my mind. Politicians do a lot of things for political appearances to solely gain a political advantage.
I have zero idea what's going on in the background. It's why I don't comment on it. If something happens, great. If not, well I expected nothing. Other than that, all anyone can say really is, "We'll see what happens."
But I found the question posed in the OP incredibly easy to answer.
