I don’t recall anyone predicting that John Bolton’s nomination as UN ambassador would be sent to the Senate floor without recommendation.
Dick Lugar did not even call for a vote to approve, as he knew Bolton would lose that one. So on it goes. In the ensuing days between today’s vote and the final Senate vote (which Bill Frist may lengthen by launching the Nuclear Option) more negative information about this nominee will surface – including his sexual perversions.
Steve Clemons has more.
