WHERE ARE THOSE GROWNUPS WE KEEP HEARING ABOUT?....Daniel Drezner quoting Fareed Zakaria about Donald Rumsfeld:

Most of Rumsfelds tart observations are true. In fact theyre often dead-on. But he is not a columnist, hes a statesman (thankfully, since hed drive many of us out of the business). To much of the world his jabs convey an arrogance that speaks not of leadership but domination. Every time Rumsfeld opens his mouth, I think, 'There goes another ally!'

When is the Bush administration going to learn this? They are statesmen, not bloggers, and cute quips aren't going to get the job done. They need to learn that patience, tact, diplomacy, and consultation are all good things in the long run.
