Why I'll Vote for Bolton

It was, of course, this senator's epiphany that Bolton was utterly unsuited to be UN ambassador that forced Bush to resort to a recess appointment of Bolton.
Why I'll Vote for Bolton: "Should the president send his renomination to the Senate, I will vote to confirm him, and I call on my Democratic colleagues to keep in mind the current situation in the Middle East and the rest of the world should the Senate have an opportunity to vote. I do not believe the United States, at this dangerous time, can afford to have a U.N. ambassador who does not have Congress's full support.

For the good of our country, the United Nations and the free world, we must end any ambiguity about whether John Bolton speaks for the United States so that he can work to support our interests at the United Nations during this critical time."

How very, very sad. Another casualty of this invasion in Lebanon; the rise of someone thoroughly incapable for the job at hand.
