Bush is a Macchiavellian genius, cont.
There are always people who discern a secret genius scenario at work behind President Bush’s apparently least successful acts and decisions. A promising such scenario, from a reader of NRO, says that Bush deliberately sent up an unqualified female diversity candidate so that both parties, particularly the Democrats, would angrily demand quality regardless of diversity, which will then enable Bush to withdraw Miers and nominate a McConnell or a Luttig. I don’t think for a second that Bush thought of such a plan, but, as I said this morning, it’s possible and desirable that things work out that way in the end.
