OpinionJournal - Column by Wolfowitz

I really, really like this guy, and I feel extraordinarily comfortable with him and Rummy at the top of the Pentagon ladder. But why can't we get a guy like this into Sec State? This idea was sparked by something that James pointed out to me a while ago -- the State Department is full of career diplomats, who think that diplomasy is an end unto itself. I had hoped that Powell would offer a different perspective to the organisation, but in too many ways he seems to have just fallen in with the crowd. What would be so wrong with someone like Wolfowitz, who understands the fact that there are other goals then simply "playing nice with the other children"?
