Bolton will get through
What's the point of having a committee vet nominees? Half of the committee is against the Bolton nomination and are prepared to vote against him, but Voivovich has decided not to oppose him in committee to let the full Senate vote, even though he plans to vote no, because he considers Bolton "the poster child of what someone in the diplomatic corps should not be." Bolton is expected to pass a Senate vote.

At War and Piece, Laura Rozen has Voinovich's strong statement against Bolton, as well as transcriptions of the committee hearing today, including Biden's great statement.

Either we find 5 more reasonable Republican Senators, or we will have a first-class jerk representing us at the UN.
