Politics Imitates Life?

I've been thinking about how the changes in the Cabinet mirror George W Bush's own life. Bush failed at every business venture he ever tried. Yet, thanks to his family connections, he continued to get more opportunites, until he winds up in the White House. The same scenario seems to be playing out in the Cabinet. Alberto Gonzales writes a memo endorsing torture, and he gets a promotion to Attorney General. Condoleeza Rice fails as National Security Advisor and gets a promotion to Secretary of State.

Bush is just following his life experience. Failure = promotion. Maybe if he hadn't been coddled his whole life, we'd all be a lot better off.
