Bolton: A winner of the Bradley Award

Upon accepting a Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation award for extroardinary achievement on May 3, John Bolton said, "I should note Senators Lincoln Chafee and Senator Dodd who did so much to help make me eligible for this award, and the prominent citizens of Pyongyang, Damascus and Tehran, who also pitched in simply by being themselves." Bolton also addressed the challenges associated with the 'permanent bureaucracy' in Washington, D.C. "Instead of advancing the policy directives of Republican presidents, political appointees often 'adopt the attitude of where they work' and ultimately leave their positions without making the slightest imprint," he said.

Three of the four recipients of this year's Bradley Prizes have strong ties to AEI. The distinguished political scientist James Q. Wilson, who has served as chairman of AEI's Council of Academic Advisers since 1991, received one of the prizes. Senior fellow John R. Bolton, who recently returned to AEI from his service at the United Nations, received another. Abigail Thernstrom, who is writing a book on the Voting Rights Act for the AEI Press, shared the award with her husband, Harvard professor Stephan Thernstrom.
