Answer
Hi again Hossein,

"He later told Cheryl, <<No wonder I lost that one. And good thing I did.>>"

Denis McDonough told Cheryl he wasn't surprised that he lost the position Cheryl was appointed for, but he was happy that he did, because she got elected in his place and things have turned out great (the implication is that Cheryl had been doing a much better job than Denis could have done).

I hope this is helpful.

Looking forward to your next question.

Best,

Amy
