Candide, a story written by Voltaire, presented an attractive girl who was schemed against and said of things that were disasters, 'All is for the best in this best of all possible worlds.' Candide was naive about aggressive intentions of others, essentially saying I'll be innocent, optimistic and that will win. It seems to me Bush has taken the role of Candide in spite of his image as BushHitler. In part he has gotten this image from not taking appropriately into account the aggression that others were up to.
