Snow Job

Word comes this morning that Tony Snow, long time Fox News correspondent, sometime columnist and former Reagan hand, will become the new White House press secretary. Snow is an excellent pick - he's telegenic, quick on his feet and knows his antagonists well. He's also been known to take a few shots at the president as a commentator. In short, he's a far more formidable figure than the good natured but sputtering Scott McClellan, who resigned last week.

If Bush is going to have any success in the rest of his presidency, he has to take the offensive on his myriad critics, who have largely had the field to themselves since the 2004 election. Hiring someone who can make a coherent case for administration policies is a good start. The next challenge - having coherent policies. But that's a topic for another day....
