1. The overwhelming response by liberals is that Bollinger played the shill during his introduction, playing into the hands of the conservative agenda and making a case for a war with Iran.

What Bollinger did was still, in my mind, exactly the type of frank talk needed right now on university campuses. The foreign policy leaders need to exhibit more etiquette, but our academic institutions do not.
