Arlen Specter Sends a Signal

From Holden:

Is Arlen Specter signalling a No vote on John Bolton?

Steve Clemons catches Specter droppping hints.

In his commentary about newly confirmed judge Janice Rogers Brown, Specter argued that she was “undiplomatic” but deserving of confirmation — because “she’s not in the State Department.”

Is Specter saying that someone* who is “undiplomatic” in the State Department is not “deserving of confirmation”?

The link to Specter’s full statement is here in the WaPo.

*That someone’s name starts with a “B”, ends with an “N”, and has an “OLTO” in the middle.
