Bolton Gone?

Robert George declares John Bolton's nomination to be UN Ambassador to be toast. His reasoning makes sense -- the problems that Bolton already faced, with the additional revelation that he testified before the grand jury regarding Valerie Plame and that he denied it on his Senate paperwork, plus speculation that he was Judith Miller's source -- make even a recess nomination hard to envision. Chalk one up for the Senate Democrats. (They should savor what few victories they can get.)

Does this mean we might have Ambassador Newt soon? Stay tuned.
