Undead Bolton

Interesting. Senator Voinovich opted not to endorse John Bolton's nomination but not to prevent to prevent the nomination from going to the floor for a vote either (he has already indicated he will vote "no"). I wonder which will be more embarrassing to the administration: the nomination going down in flames, or Bolton being confirmed and then, inevitably, making an ass of himself in public?

Well, they haven't been embarrassed about Colin Powell waving a vial in front of the UN to make the case about WMDs in Iraq, they haven't been embarrassed about Condi Rice's statements about mushroom clouds, and they certainly weren't embarassed about Rumsfeld's planning of the invasion. Some people who did some embarrassing stuff even got medals! Bolton should have it easy if he gets confirmed.
