COOPERATION....Apparently President Bush is preparing a push to "repair relations" with key allies:

The effort stems from the administration's realization that progress on issues that include the Middle East peace process, stabilizing Iraq and preventing Iran and North Korea from developing nuclear weapons is far more likely with the cooperation of allies than if the U.S. worked alone, a White House official said.

I have nothing against this, of course, but it's still a pretty stunning admission. It's sort of like a basketball coach having a "realization" that good teamwork will probably help win more games.

Why would anyone on Bush's staff admit publicly that this hadn't really occurred to them before?
