Bush and Wilson

Over at Oxblog David Adesnik has an excellent post on the Bush/Wilson comparisons.

Although not the point of the post, it did bring home to me something I hadn't really thought of before. It was not Wilson's idealism that led to his failure, so much as his faith in a multi-national body - the League of Nations. To be fair to Wilson, no one could have predicted just what a travesty that body was, or how dramatically its successor, the United Nations, would plumb ever darker depths of political tragicomedy.
