Bush caves to the Democratic Senate! Bush ****cans Bolton. According to a White House Press release, U.N. Ambassador John Bolton will step down when his temporary appointment expires within weeks. It appears that the administration is picking its fights with caution and will not appoint Bolton for a second recess appointment. Perhaps Bush should ask former President Clinton if he would like at nomination.
Bolton's nomination has languished in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for more than a year, blocked by Democrats and several Republicans. Sen. Lincoln Chafee, a moderate Republican who lost in the midterm elections Nov. 7 that swept Democrats to power in both houses of Congress, was adamantly opposed to Bolton.
