John Bolton can finally go to work!
Today, many Democrats are angry that Bush went over their heads and installed John Bolton at the U.N. However, I would like to remind them that the President wouldn't have needed to do this if they had played fair! There is no justification for forcing the United States to function for five months with no reresentative at the worlds foremost intergovernmental organization.
My favorite quote on the Bolton debacle was from Senator Chris Dodd, who said that Bolton would be going to the U.N. "without the confidence of Congress." Funny, I thought the entire reason for the filibuster was that Bolton had enough votes to win conformation! The term "Congress" is not synonymous with the term "Democratic Party", and I wish the left wing would stop acting as if it is. "Congress" consists mostly of Republicans who do have confidence in Mr. Bolton, and the Democrats need to learn to deal with that fact.
