Bush Imagines Victory Over Imaginary Proponents of Iranian Nukes

From Mark Silva out of The Swamp of your Chicago Tribune:
Bush conceded that he himself had elevated rhetoric about Iran when he identified Iran, Iraq and North Korea as three threats during his State of the Union address in 2002. But since then, he said today, other nations have joined the U.S. in attempting to avert the development of nuclear weaponry in Iran.

"I got out a little early on the issue by saying, 'axis of evil,'" Bush said at Johns Hopkins. "But I meant it... I saw it as a problem," he said of Iran’s designs for nuclear power. "But now many others have come to the conclusion that Iran should not have a nuclear weapon."
Far be it from me to question the president's gift for "getting out a little early," but can anyone name even a single individual who ever thought that Iran should have a nuclear weapon?

Just one person for Iranian nukes?
