Bolton Out, Time for Cooperation
There is some very welcome news this morning: John Bolton, the recess-appointed UN Ambassador, has finally seen that confirmation was not in the cards and will resign. I repeat my call for the nomination of Jim Leach to act as America's ambassador at the United Nations; he is precisely the kind of diplomat we need representing us there at this time.
Charles at WeThePeople has more on the Bolton departure.
[Update: Hotline has Bush's full statement].
[Update: Drudge says George Mitchell is "said to be on the short-list" to replace Bolton. This seems unlikely, but would certainly be an interesting move and a 180-degree shift from the previous nominee.]
