MAN, HE'S BEGGIN' FOR A RECESS APPOINTMENT:

Biden says Bolton deal now - or never (Joanne Kenen, June 23, 2005, Reuters)

The top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Joseph Biden, said on Thursday the White House had to provide information Democrats seek on U.N. nominee John Bolton by the end of the day or the nomination would be dead.

"If they don't have (the documents) by the end of the day, it's finished," the Delaware Democrat said of the bitter dispute over President Bush's choice to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.


When the President appoints Bolton next week he should lay the blame directly at Neil's door.

I hope you're right because some of the natives here in the boonies are getting restless.

Who is Neil?

Kinnock (former Labor party leader, England - Biden's muse, apparently).

It had better be a recess appointment, because otherwise the President is going to lose a LOT of respect and oomph, and not just in his base. The GOP bawlers and hand-wringers in Congress will be emboldened to wail all the more.
