Wonder if Bruno is having second thoughts about picking Blue Origin over AJR.
I wonder why ULA ever thought intentionally putting yourself at the mercy of a competitor (and an unproven one at that) was a good idea.

Why bother?
This could be advantage for Musk and SpaceX

1. First ULA would depends on SpaceX on Engines, not would-be competitor Blue Origin.
2. Next to that would Space Force be grateful for support and show appreciation in form of new contracts.
3. Also "Elon Musk comes to Rescue" could help in Capitol Hill against current Bezos lobbyism.

it's win win win situation for SpaceX...
