Bolton Vote Set For May 12

More commentary on the nomination of John Bolton to be the U.S. ambassador to the U.N.

First, this quote from Stephen Hayes' account is revealing:

Senate Democrats on the Foreign Relations Committee spent much of last Tuesday afternoon shouting down their opponents, gesticulating wildly, interrupting speakers, and making unsubstantiated claims--all of this in an effort to delay a vote on the Bolton nomination. He is unfit for the job, they claim, because over the course of his career Bolton is alleged to have shouted down his opponents, gesticulated wildly, interrupted speakers, and made unsubstantiated claims. Washington at its finest.

Lawrence Eagleburger sees little substance in Democrats' objections to Bolton.

And Mona Charen says Bolton's crime is possession of common sense.

Democrats have bought enough time to keep looking for substantive dirt on Bolton before the May 12 vote. Look for a report that he once talked back to his Mommy after jaywalking on the way home from school.
