Defectors were Landrieu, Ben Nelson, and Mark Pryor.
More — lots more — on them later.
Senators Lieberman and Feinstein — THANK YOU.
Senators Biden, Boxer, Sarbanes, Rockefeller, Dodd, Obama, Levin, and many others — THANK YOU TOO.
Senator Voinovich, you continue to be ferociously independent — and though you voted for cloture, your leadership otherwise is appreciated.
Senator Reid — STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR WHAT HAPPENED.
The “issue here” is the Constitutional responsibilities of the Senate to provided advise and consent on Executive branch nominations.
More later. . .I need a drink.
Thanks to all of you for supporting this blog, flooding TWN with information and your thoughts. And thank you for your financial support in the new “paypal button” on the front of my homepage.
This is a victory…another one.

John Bolton is NOT someone America can be proud of at the U.N. He is not someone of the sort of impeccable credentials, standing, and vision that we should be making our Ambassador in the convocation of nations in Turtle Bay on Manhattan.
More later….much, much, much more.
Thanks to all of you who have been supporting and helping this process.
