"我们大多数人比他有更高的要求。"

你不对据曼本人说,担任总统是"hard"

"the President's obsession with exercise over 物质"
I'm not sure what prompts you to make that a comparative statement, since we only have reason to believe 总统 价值观 exercise, but 我们不't really have any reason to believe he 价值观 it over 物质.

In any event, it seems to me that 总统, in addition to everything else, is checking to see what kind of health habits his potential appointees have. Since these are 终身任命s, that doesn'似乎不合理。那么为何不?毕竟,我们着眼于我们的选举候选人所遇到的每一个小问题。

当然有专栏批评克林顿's jogging and Kerry'单板滑雪或帆板运动可能已经得到了Spinsanity治疗。

洛杉矶时报的专栏文章太白了,我'm being nice. I'令作家感到震惊的是,我可以在他的日程安排中找到时间进行锻炼(他声称他没有锻炼时间),或者我'我会采取他不健康的方式度日。

LAT甩在布什上以解决问题.

怪不得有这么多"people of size" in this country.

抱歉。这种批评是毫无根据的。在我的个人生活中,有两个例子,有50个左右的人,他们的日程安排让人不知所措,"substance", and exercise "religiously",以及为什么这样做:

咨询办公室负责人,经常旅行,每周可能工作60个小时。如果在路上,无论他身在何处以及从7:00开始他的状况如何,他都会在4:30左右起床跑步(仍处于马拉松状态)。

在家里练习儿童心理咨询师的人,还是一家距他家约85英里的pysch大学系主任。他的"practice"离他家大约10英里。此外,他每天中午都在跑步。

为什么?机警和头脑清醒。创造力。缓解压力。保持体重减轻。没生病

Give me two candidates who are equally bright and likable and respected for their competence, and I will choose the 适合ness-oriented one every day. For they realize that in order to be at their best their system should be running llke a Swiss watch, physically. Without the exercise, both have said they are less able to focus, less energized, less "healthy". Besides, as someone already stated, we are talking about a 终身任命; I think (generally) the mind stays sharper longer for most people if it is attached to a 适合 and active body.

And it could just be that Bush noted Roberts looking 适合 and acting 适合 and just "wanted to know"他实现该目标的个人策略是什么。哪个好,不是't it?

我们不't really have any reason to believe he 价值观 it over 物质.

您是否密切注意了"substance"这些天的白宫政策?

看,我每天都在运动。我同意'即使您的日程安排很忙,也有可能。而且我对总统一视同仁,就像我对克林顿不反对一样's jogging or Kerry's windsurfing. They'重新获得个人生活。

我反对的想法是,锻炼与成为一名优秀的最高法院大法官或一名好的经济顾问有关。只是没有'跟随。布什可能将它们视为联系在一起,因为它们都需要纪律,但是我'在读研究生时,学院里有很多人执着地工作,从不运动。与其他许多领域相同。在一定程度上,布什花时间专注于高级官员的锻炼习惯,而不是实质性问题,我认为他'对国家不利。那's why I referred to "the President'对物质运动的痴迷。"

>>"...锻炼与成为一名优秀的最高法院大法官或一名好的经济顾问有关。只是没有't follow."

And there is flaw #1 in your argument. If an economic advisor goes into a slump, personally and/or professionally, such that job performance falls, you replace her/him. Not so with a lifetime appointee, and Bush is correct in at least considering the likelihood of a nominee being sharp and 健康 for a long time.

>>"And to the extent that Bush spends time focusing on the exercise habits of top officials rather than 实质性关注, I think he'对国家不利。"

第二个缺陷是这样的观念,即布什一定在缩短所谓的"substantive concerns"通过询问被视为"less substantive"。在我看来,他可以花所有的时间在任何方面指导自己的讨论,而不会缩短任何潜在的讨论领域。

这里仅是一种思路。让's say you'是具有强大营销背景而非技术方面的CEO。您的公司即将聘请首席科学家来满足公司的一些关键研究需求。那些具有技术背景的人已经筛选了此人,并且他在其领域中屡获殊荣。如果你'作为一个聪明的首席执行官,您的面试根本不会涉及任何技术性内容。相反,您将探索"intangibles"别人可能已经掩盖或理所当然。您'我会寻找有关的线索,线索和黄旗"fit" and "values" and "traits" and "style"因为您(首席执行官)对组织中的此类事情有看法。实质性?并不是的。必要?绝对。

我反对的想法是,锻炼与成为一名优秀的最高法院大法官或一名好的经济顾问有关。
好吧,我'我只是在猜测他的动机是什么-就我所知,他可能一直在闲聊,或者他可以直接从三边委员会得到指示,只选择普拉提的候选人...谁知道? -但是,布伦丹(Brendan),您如何相信候选人的健康状况与他们的表现无关?

It'当然不是最重要的问题,但是如果您不这样做't think President's(和选民)考虑到这一点,您'只是没有引起最小的关注。而且,如果您认为它不相关,那么您真的应该全面阅读"lifetime appointment" deal.

您'是个聪明人,布伦丹。唐't play dumb on this.

那么歧视残疾人可以吗?临床肥胖?您'在这里滑坡一世 '我不傻一世'我是认真的。如果每天要跑多英里或达到同等水平的运动是最高法院的要求,我们'从一开始就将大量合格的提名人从桌子上带走。

那么歧视残疾人可以吗?
谁说过残疾?一世'我在谈论健康。是的,是的's ok to include health in your evaluation of a job candidates 适合ness. (no pun intended)

那's why Presidents don't appoint 80 year olds and people with terminal illnesses to the Supreme Court. All else equal, a President would rather have a 健康 appointee than an unhealthy one.

如果你've some inside information that indicates that 总统 is making decisions solely on the basis of physical 适合ness....disclose it. Certainly, that would be a terrible single issue on which to pick a candidate.

考虑到面试候选人的素质,我认为 '很明显他考虑了其他因素。而且,这样做之后,他还对任命可以长期服务的人感兴趣。

现在,也许您认为他应该任命一个可以在短短的7年中任职的人,然后及时退休,以便克林顿总统任命一名好的自由派人士出庭。如果那件事发生了,你不应该'当她尝试任命可以服务更长的时间的人时,不要感到惊讶。

只是为了使作者认为我没有普通读者,因此我将发布免责声明,我无意中偶然发现了该帖子。而且,我还要说,我将永远不会回到这个博客。

当该博客的作者同意"布什痴迷于令人毛骨悚然的运动", the nonsense that is current Lib thinking is revealed. The President exercises because he understands the importance of physical health. In fact, his superior level of 适合ness is a testiment to his dedication and work ethic. It is ridiculous and ididotic to suggest that because one engages in rigorous physical activity they are necessarily lacking in mental capacity or intelecutal dexterity.

实际上,这种批评是"小事一桩。"总统没有"vet his selection" based upon the 适合ness level of the interviewee. Undoubtedly, the conversation drifted that way much the way two men that fish reguarly would tend to discuss fishing with one another.

This represents the low point 在里面 实践 of Bush detraction. Self-loathing Libs who lacked the backbone to stand up to 总统 in opposing the War in Iraq are now looking for any point, anything at all, to criticize 总统 on. Thankfully, history has shown that a "negative party"不会存在太久。当民主党人竭尽全力保持在当前政治环境中的重要性时,他们必须诉诸于这种卑微,基本活动。希望不久以后,他们将面对类似于联邦党和辉格党的命运,并逐渐消失。
