But it seems to me -- just looking at some that are available through Vanguard -- that you could pick one with a yield that you like and a maturity date that fits your needs and then not worry about what the bond market does. Even if bonds come crashing down, wouldn't you still be ok with the bond you bought?

Yes, unless your specific bond defaults or gets called away(if its callable). Some quality DD on our part helps hedge against this to some extent.

And if you know how to pick stocks, you aren't very far from picking bonds.
