killing Dumbledore, even if this meant he would die?
one reason *could* be is that he promised DD or was following DD
I know that, but my point is that, no matter how much he had promised
Dumbledore to do it, he had not done it anyway: he had chosen to die
We then go back to Sophie's Choice.
You ask "I say that if Snape is really good at heart, why..."
Snape made many choices. To have a "Sophie's Choice" means that all your
choices are "evil" and no matter which choice is made that person will look
and/or feel evil no matter how good that person is. An Hobson's choice is
similar. An Hobson's choice is where it appears you are given a choice but
in reality there is only one choice you can make. Snape choices may have
been both "Sophie and Hobson's Choices".
We are then left with the questions.
1. Is it known for sure that Snape have a choice which would have saved
Draco and not killed DD?
2. If Snape did have that choice.... Would that be a good choice?
Again there can be reasons why Snape "didn't chose to save Draco without
killing Dumbledore, even if this meant he would die" other than Snape not
being good at heart. He may have not been able or that may have been a bad
choice [obeying DD normally is a good choice].
