Five Tools of Politics

While Boot's template for gauging candidate skills has merit, his assessment of Bush's measure against it has some problems.

He takes the Florida non-recount as evidence of Bush's fire-in-the-belly. But there's a big difference between fire-in-the-belly and a prostituted Supreme Court.

He takes the Tim Russert appearance as evidence of his self-discipline. Tim was a pansy and Bush just kept parroting the same tired evasions. I guess it shows discipline of some sort but not of a sort to be admired in any way.
