The end of John Bolton

Eminent Bolton-watcher Steve Clemons is reporting at The Washington Note that "the Bolton confirmation process is now dead": "The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is 'highly unlikely' to reconsider Bolton's confirmation again as things now stand."

The Bolton era may finally be coming to an inglorious end.


Given my opposition both to his nomination and to his recess appointment, I'll be quite happy to see him go, even if Bush is bound to appoint a replacement in much the same mold.

Allow me to reprint co-blogger Grace's wonderful haiku of May 2005:

Spring, and the world weeps.
Bolton is nominated.
Voinovich? Spineless.
