Another No on Bolton

Tip to Stygius for the news that Louisiana Democrat Mary Landrieu announced today that although she supported cloture on John Bolton's nomination yesterday, she will vote against his nomination when it comes up for an up-or-down vote. Steve Clemons has her full statement.

Yet more good news.

I've been trying to imagine the retribution from the White House against Senate Republicans that vote against Bolton... What do you think they'll do to make sure they can rein in support from now on?

Is it weird that Bush is already looking like a Lame-Duck President?

If Bolton doen't get confirmed, it's time for Bush to dig a lake in Crawford and quack his presidency away.

Has there ever been a greater misrepesentation in politics than "I'm a uniter, not a divider?" The man can't even unite his own party. Even Thune, who was elected by the Karl Rove machine feels comfortabale playing hard ball with the president. This will be interesting to watch.

But he WAS able to unite them last term... When they all seemed to run under his coattails. Now either they are smelling bad fumes from him in terms of the midterms, or they will do some Anti-Bushization for the 2008 election.
