Democrats in the Senate are holding steady on their claim that Bolton is unfit for the job because of many issues including a horrible temper, a habit of threatening people, and improper requests of NSA information.

Maybe Bush is using Bolton as a way to distance the US even further from the UN. I know this will upset a lot of people in DC, but just imagine how many in the UN and around the world are shaking their heads.

Ugh, the very thought of an appeasable, condescending diplomat representing the US to the UN is revolting to me.

Jobs for the boys.
The UN matters not to the current US foreign relations policy. Diplomatic failure is guaranteed but of no interest to the criminal gang in the Whitehouse.
1. One, such as an ambassador, who has been appointed to represent a government in its relations with other governments.
2. One who uses skill and tact in dealing with others.

The job of a UN ambassador is to accurately relay the administration's policy, not to sit and sip tea and talk nice to theives and dictators.

I think this is an extention of that encounter and further signs that the Bush administration views the UN with contempt.
