    You can run but you can't hide in your thermo 

    Maureen Dowd sets off bells. They're either chimes of praise or clangors of alarm. There is no middle range with The New York Times columnist. Love her or loathe her, give Dowd this: she is good at melding ideas and phrases. Today on Michael Feldman's Whad'Ya Know? radio program, Dowd found a new way to describe the isolation with which candidates (and those who go on to become president) can surround themselves (even in a throng). Of her friend George W. Bush, about whom she has collected columns into a book titled Bushworld: Enter at Your Own Risk, Dowd said that the president has burrowed right past the protective bubble with which the powerful often surround themselves to become a guy so isolated from the truths of our world that it seems he is in a thermos. Maybe that's why Dowd thinks Bush is always in hot water.
