Bolton Vote Delayed 2 Weeks

Three Republicans jumped the fence and allowed the Democrats to prevail. Chafee, Hagel and Voinovich went wobbly and capitulated to Biden, Boxer etc. to delay the committee recomendation of Bolton's nomination to go to the Senate floor.

The frantic mudraking by the left has had an effect and caused the weakest links in the chain to break ranks.

The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee delayed a vote on the nomination of John Bolton as U.N. ambassador after a Republican senator said he was not prepared to vote for him on Tuesday and cast the nomination in doubt.

"I've heard enough today that I don't feel comfortable about voting for Mr. Bolton," Ohio Sen. George Voinovich said, stunning fellow Republicans who were set to push the contentious nomination through the committee on a party-line vote.
