I just received an email from the Bush/Cheney press flaks with the list of official “surrogates” (what a concept) for Don Rumsfeld.
In alphabetical order they are:
Dr. Ken Adelman
Senator Bill Bradley
Dr. Henry Kissinger
Dr. George Shultz
Wait a second. BILL BRADLEY. I thought he was a Democrat. A Democrat who wanted to freeze or cut defense spending.
Al Gore spent much of the primaries arguing that Bradley wasn’t a loyal party man. Geez, I guess he was right.
The only answer I can think of is that both Bradley and Rumsfeld went to Princeton, which would mean that Bill Bradley is more loyal to Princeton University than the Democratic party. (Not a big surprise) Don’t get me wrong. I don’t have any beef with Princeton (honestly, I went there too, and here’s the embarrassing evidence). But couldn’t Bradley hold off on making it clear just one more time that he’s just not much of a team player, and a bit of turncoat.
P.S. And in case you’re wondering. No, Talking Points is not a big fan of Bill Bradley.
