There are few more intelligent or influential men in Washington and among conservatives than Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard. He has authored a piece one might suspect makes Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld very nervous, as it's highly critical of him.

But as you read the piece, keep the following in mind. As this Washington Post story makes clear, Bill Kristol is viewed with some suspicion by the Bush team. More than that, as the piece also notes, Kristol was a big, big booster of John McCain's candidacy in 2000. Remember all this? And just two days ago, as noted here, John McCain expressed "no confidence" in Don Rumsfeld.

Coincidence? You decide.

What's going on? Despite his protestations to the contrary, could McCain want Rumsfeld's job? What are he and Kristol up to?
