    From “Bushworld” by Maureen Dowd:

    Despite the multigender, multicultural cast of some of his top appointments, and despite the relentless parade of women and thnic entertainers and the Philadelphia convention and planned for the inaugural, his big choices–the roomful of men he will rely on to tell him what to do–reflect a bland, unadventurous adherence to tradition.

    His inner circle has a very mahogany corporate suite, musty men’s club feel to it, and “I Like Ike” feel.

    When W. met the press with his choice for attorney general, John Ashcroft, before Christmas, he vividly showed how important it is to him that his White House be as leakproof as the Skull and Bones “tomb.”

    “When he gives me his legal advice,” W. said of Mr. Ashcroft, “You won’t know about it unless I tell you.” In a little while he added: “Whatever counsel it is, I hope I don’t read about it.”
