Love Thy Enemy

...or at least thy former election opponent.

     Despite the state's continued cuts in employees and funding, the  Agriculture Commissioner has hired his former election opponent, Dale Peterson, as a kind of Deputy Commissioner. 

     It's the second former opponent John McMillan has hired.
  And let's not forget that Republican Governor Bentley famously hired Democratic election opponent Ron Sparks.

With all the party-switching going on, this is not surprising.

Sort of like ""the enemy of my enemy is my friend," or something like that.

And another thought---"keep your friends close and your enemies even closer"...
