Waiting longer risked loss of public trust.

Good point.

The Democrats are feeling this now, as credibility continues to decline as the left seems to cling harder on policies they should never have subscribed to in the first place....or at least a tenuous subscription that gave them room to walk back if it is in their interest to. Reminds me of what Lyndon Johnson said about being in Viet Nam, when he compared it to having a wolf by the ears: you absolutely don't want to be there but you dare not let go.
