Bush renominates Pickering.
What is my problem? Fool that I am, I thought Bush would probably shelve his plans to put Pickering up again, after the late unpleasantness with Trent Lott. When will I learn that any suggestion that Bush should avoid doing something he really wants to do has the effect on him, as on all spoiled brats, of greatly reinforcing his determination to do precisely what he's been warned against doing?
