Democrats Stand Firm Again Against Bolton Nomination
Democrats again prevailed in continuing to defer a vote on UN Ambassador Nominee, John Bolton. The motion to close off debate on Mr. Bolton's nomination, brought forth by Republicans, fell short by 6 votes. Democrats vow to keep the debate going unti the White House submits requested files on Mr. Bolton. Democrats have charged that Mr. Bolton does not have the diplomatic skills for the job of UN Ambassador. Mr. Bolton has reportedly bullied and intimidated subordinates until they agree with Bolton's viewpoint on the issues.
Again, Democrats, despite their minority status, have been successful in keeping the vote on Bolton from occuring. Keep up the good work Dems! Stand up for America!
