This just from Senator Barack Obama‘s office on subject of Wolfowitz and Bolton nominations:
While there are some concerns about Wolfowitz, I am much more concerned about Bolton and the UN, which is a direct statement on how we’re going to interact with the international community.
This is the guy who said that if you lop off 10 floors of UN building in New York, it wouldn’t make a difference. Which, you know, is not the best way to make friends and influence people. [Sen. Obama, March 17, 2005]
Senator Obama has a key vote on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Now, more work to do. . .
