29. Your analysis makes a lot of sense. I'm not sure about the wanting to
be loved part, but in general, what you're saying is probably going to be at the heart of the way history and political scinece experts will argue it in the future. He experimented with and trusted the centrist stuff, therefore, I will always refrain from gushing. Standing up to Gingrich, holding fast on the budget and spending, and not giving in to the PNAC crowd were the highlights, at the time and in retrospect. 'Getting it' as far as diplomacy and the culture of the rest of the world was a plus. The capacity to talk to a foreign President's financial guy as easily as the President was refreshing. Not selling parks, not putting arsenic in the water, and breaking treaties were right up there. But he was a corporate guy and probably spent more time analyzing and catering to the right, then the left.

I can't fault what you've expressed here.

(I'll refrain from my Nader, the pro-corporate supporter, rant).
