WASHINGTON, D.C. -- One of the Republicans who has been wavering on the nomination of John Bolton to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said Tuesday that he will reluctantly support him.
Rhode Island Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee's decision gives momentum to Bolton ahead of a Senate Foreign Relations Committee vote Thursday.
A 10-8 party-line vote on the GOP-led panel would send Bolton's nomination to the full Senate and probable confirmation.
Pray tell, Dr. Bloor. What drives a man to (a) equivocate, and thereby squander any possible political value in his decision to the loyalty-obsessed theocracy, and then (b) do the manifestly wrong thing, thereby abandoning all chance of redemption in the eyes of the rest of us?
What makes a man so totally screw the pooch?
