Democrats block Bolton

From  AP via SFGate:

Senate Democrats blocked John Bolton's confirmation as U.N. ambassador for the second time Monday and President Bush left open the possibility of bypassing lawmakers and appointing the tough-talking former State Department official on his own.

The vote was 54-38, six shy of the total needed to force a final vote on Bolton, and represented an erosion in support from last month's failed Republican effort. Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, who voted in May to advance the nomination, switched positions and urged Bush to consider another candidate, while only three Democrats crossed party lines.

So much for cooperation. Gee, this will be, what, the eleventy millionth time the Democrats have offered a compromise only to stab the other person in the back as soon as they agree.

Hopefully Bush will go ahead and Recess Appoint him (like he should have done at the previous recess)
