  •  David Brooks - the presidential expert in 2000 (13+ / 0-)
    So I am planning to vote for George W. Bush because he is a nice guy. As a nice guy he will attract and retain the loyalty of outstanding administration officials, and together they will promote policies that are smarter and bolder than we ever would expect, just from looking at Bush himself. As a nice man, he will prove remarkably adept at working with Congress, with Democrats, with the media and with all the other different people you need to handle as president. He will set a tone of bonhomie that will grease the machinery of government; things will actually get done in Washington again.
    We are lucky enough this year to have a man running for president who has not spent his life consumed by the idea that he must be president.

    In other words we are lucky to have a relatively normal person running for president. Maybe Willy Loman was right: It’s important to be liked and even more important to be well liked.

    George W. Bush should be president

    Why does David still have a job?
