Bolton Likely To Be Removed from U.N. Post

White House Seeks a Way to Keep Bolton at the U.N. -

Looks like another Neocon is on his way out (finally). Thanks Rhode Island moderates!
"President Bush's nomination of John R. Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations appears increasingly endangered in the Senate, prompting the administration to explore other ways to keep him in the job after his temporary appointment expires in January, officials said yesterday.

The situation represents a sharp turnaround from two weeks ago, when the White House was confident it could finally push through Bolton's long-stalled nomination. But last week's surprise move by Sen. Lincoln D. Chafee (R-R.I.) to delay a vote convinced Republicans on Capitol Hill that the nomination may be doomed, prompting a search for alternatives."
Why thank R.I. mods? Because Chafee will lose to a (D) if he lets John "I Hate the U.N." Bolton be our actual ambassador to the U.N. Bolton is currently there through a weekend "recess" appointment.
