Laura Ingraham this morning played a bite of Sen. Christopher Dodd saying on one of the weekend talk shows that he will not vote to confirm John Bolton (as Sen. George Voinovich has now decided to do) because so many other ambassadors at the U.N. don’t like Bolton.
Perhaps Dodd forgets: Those other ambassadors don’t represent America’s interests. Bolton does–effectively.
One might ask: Whose interests is Dodd representing? Do the people of Connecticut really want the Syrian, Saudi, Russian, and French ambassadors to have a veto power over our choice of an American envoy?
