I decided to read the info page on Widmore and the opening paragraph referred to his frieghter with Naomi and co. Daniel told the Losties Widmore sent them there to kill ALL of them. He wanted Ben, too, of course. Am I remembering this right? If so, this could prove he's not in favor of the candidate and has his own agenda.
