This is what I have been waiting for. The reason I say this is because he would make a great vice president for Sarah Palin. A Palin/Bolton ticket is what this country needs to get the nation back on track to prosperity and get our military hardware upgraded to the point that other countries would not be able to match our technology and firepower. Bolton has eperience in foreign relations. John Bolton thinking of running for president John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, announced today he is considering a bid for U.S. president in 2012. It was his first direct response to months of Internet speculation that he may join the next presidential race. Bolton was speaking to WND senior reporter Aaron Klein on the latter's investigative radio show on WABC in New York. "Yes, I am considering it," Bolton said when asked if he is considering a 2012 presidential run. "I am very concerned about the direction of national security policy." Continued Bolton: "I am concerned that we hardly talk about it at national level debates in the mainstream media. The president, as they say, just seems to view national security issues as an irritation, as a distraction from what his real priorities are."
