Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Congratulations to the Bush administration
Yes, you read that headline correctly. I think they finally got one right. The treaty negotiated with North Korea is a winner. Economic aid for a truly impoverished country in return for shutting down their nuclear weapons program. Next step is to improve the humanitarian crisis in that country, and I hope the administration will pursue that in its bilateral talks.
I don't think (as John Bolton does) that this precedent is bad at all. In fact, this is a clear sign to Iran... this is what the carrot looks like, and you've seen the stick up-close.
I hope the administration gives them every possible chance to choose the carrot.
