While Bush and the United States continue to be labeled as unilateralists and arrogant cowboys looking for a fight, it appears two unlikely riders are looming on the horizon – France and Hillary Clinton.

France is threatening a nuclear response against any state that sponsors a terrorist attack against it. While Clinton complained that the “White House chose to downplay the threats [posed by Iran] and chose to outsource the negotiations.”

Is it possible to both a cowering pacifists and a thundering war hawk depending on the audience?
