The Battle is Not Over — But the Tilt is Not Towards Bolton


Reuters reports on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s delay in voting on John Bolton’s nomination.
George Voinovich gets the “Conscience of a Conservative Award” as far as TWN is concerned.
Reuters reports:

The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee delayed a vote on the nomination of John Bolton as U.N. ambassador after a Republican senator said he was not prepared to vote for him on Tuesday and cast the nomination in doubt.
“I’ve heard enough today that I don’t feel comfortable about voting for Mr. Bolton,” Ohio Sen. George Voinovich said, stunning fellow Republicans who were set to push the contentious nomination through the committee on a party-line vote.

I’m still stunned that the Senate is managing to find the right way on this outrageous nomination.
Maybe this can be the beginning of a number of good things.
