what w wants

De facto President George Bush spoke about the qualities of a good GOP presidential candidate. He said, "I just want to know whether or not somebody's got a sound set of principles from which they will not deviate."

So Bush wants a President who like him, is pig-headedly stubborn and refuses to change his thinking no matter what reality is.

Bush also said he would also ask, "What process will you have in place to ensure that you get the, you know, unvarnished opinion of advisers?"

That's particularly rich coming from an Administration that has famously REJECTED unvarnished opinion (remember General Shinseki?) and instead has molded the facts to meet Bush's preconceived notions. Having yes-men in an Administration isn't unusual, but this one has taken that to new heights.
