Food for thought

When some folks sell a car or some other high ticket item, they sometimes inflate the asking price over what they really want so that a prospective buyer will talk them down to their desired price.

I believe Bush may be pulling the same trick concerning his nomination of John Bolton. He chose someone so polarizing, so pathological that the chances of making it through the process is slim. Now with the Bolton nomination almost dead, Bush is likely to nominate another anti-UN uber-conservative who isn't quite as nasty. The new nominee will be only slightly more desirable and will be seen as a lesser of two evils. So it goes.
