If, in fact, Tony Snow
ends up taking the White House press secretary job, as CNN is reporting, it will do Bush much good. Snow is a smart guy, and people like him. He is gentle, but can be very firm, and if he can show that hard inside against the pushy front-row in the briefing room from time to time, that will do the administration much good in tough times. He gave a talk on federalism
at the Ashbrook Center back in 1995.
