    Yeah I can really see the bipartisanship going to support Bolton. Heck they couldnt get support for him with the Republicans.

    LINCOLN CHAFEE OPPOSING JOHN BOLTON UN CONFIRMATION OFFICIALLY: BOLTON CONFIRMATION BATTLE OFFICIALLY OVER (8 comments )
    READ MORE: John Bolton, 2006


    Word has just reached me from a well-placed source that the White House has continued to push John Bolton's confirmation prospects as US Ambassador to the United Nations despite the election outcome.

    Another highly placed source has informed me that in just a few minutes Senator Lincoln Chafee is calling a press conference to state categorically that he will not support John Bolton's confirmation in the upcoming lame duck session.

    The Bolton confirmation will be officially dead in a few minutes.

    Update: Here is a copy of what the White House did today. Does this look like a new "bipartisan" start? I don't think so:

    THE WHITE HOUSE
    Office of the Press Secretary

    For Immediate Release -- November 9, 2006

    NOMINATIONS SENT TO THE SENATE:

    John Robert Bolton, of Maryland, to be the Representative of the United States of America to the United Nations, with the rank and status of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, and the Representative of the United States of America in the Security Council of the United Nations.

    John Robert Bolton, of Maryland, to be Representative of the United States of America to the Sessions of the General Assembly of the United Nations during his tenure of service as Representative of the United States of America to the United Nations.


    The President is showing that he is not as ready as people think to collaborate with the new Senate and new House.:moon4:

    Last I checked Lincoln Chafee is a Republican. So I'm not quite sure what your latest rant is about.

    And no, it isn't bipartisan to choose the most offensive people possible and then try to ram them down the throats of everyone else. This is why you guys are out on your butts come January. :thanks:
