This is what I think as well. If there is adequate flexibility, use a Vanguard bond fund. Also check for a stable value fund (sometimes, they seem to fall off the list or be listed somewhere else) and use that if necessary. If not and if bonds must
be held in the 401k, I'd probably use the PIMCO or Blackrock inflation protected choice.
