Bolton Confirmation Is Dead, Says Political Insider
Posted on Sep 8, 2006
Ding Dong, Bolton’s tenure is dead!
The man who showed utter contempt for the U.N. will probably be America’s ambassador to the world no longer, reports The Washington Note’s well-placed Steve Clemons.
Several well-placed sources close to the Bolton nomination process have reported to me that the Bolton confirmation process is now dead.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is “highly unlikely” to reconsider Bolton’s confirmation again as things now stand.
One insider reported, as far as the Committee is concerned, “we consider the confirmation over. It’s dead.”
For those who care about international diplomacy, the end of John Bolton’s tenure at the U.N. would provide a reason to strut—like John Travolta, above.
