The details are here...now, I ask you, from a strictly power politics point of view, does George W. Bush look like a weak president to you? Prior to his second win and subsequent events in the Middle East, it is almost inconceivable this nomination would have stood. Now the only complaints seem to be in the press.
Way too much attention is being paid to Bush's low approval ratings in current polls. This is a natural consequence of his willingness to touch the third rail of Social Security reform, and the relentless negativity coming from the Left. In the only area that truly matters, that of historical significance, George W. Bush has turned out to be far more than even his supporters could have imagined. The quick acceptance of the hated Wolfowitz is testimony to that growing power and influence.
