I don't trust anyone who's labeled a czar
Bennett was drug czar during the Bush I reign.

From a cached page of the Heritage Foundation site:
Bennett is a Distinguished Fellow at The Heritage Foundation and the Washington Fellow of the Claremont Institute. He holds a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy from Williams College, a Ph.D. in political philosophy from the University of Texas, and a law degree from Harvard. Dr. Bennett served as President Reagans Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities and Secretary of Education, and Presidents Bushs "drug czar." He also has written and edited 11 books including The Book of Virtues, The Childrens Book of Virtues, and The Death of Outrage: Bill Clinton and the Assault on American Ideals, which hit number one on The New York Times best seller list.

1. It all started with William Simon as "energy czar" in the 70's
and went down hill from there.
