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.
