I think you two are right, but I also wonder about it a little because they really didn't know when the real merge would occur. They only had a short time together, and I don't think it was unreasonable to expect that it should have been longer before the merge.

Certainly, the uncertainty of the merge time would have been a consideration, Bill. But he should have recognized that he'd wield more power over someone who thinks they're vulnerable than someone who thinks they've got a fully-formed alliance waiting on the other side, whenever that is.
Heck, once he got Heidi's OK, he could have gone to Jeanne and informed her that Heidi sold her out. :laugh All right, that might have been going too far, from a strategic point of view. But it would've been fun to watch.
