Key Republican joins Dems opposing Bolton Nomination.

"This is probably not what President Bush had in mind when he stressed bipartisanship after the Democratic Party's midterm elections sweep.

A key Senate Republican has joined Democrats in opposing one of Bush's initiatives for the lame-duck Congress: John Bolton's nomination as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations."


Kick ass, Mr. Senator. *celebrates* And wow, I actually feel like a Rhode Islander today. And damn proud to be one.

Of course I'm a geeky Rhode Islander, so I'm obligated to point out that we also made the BBC and the CBC, and probably a lot of other places on the planet.

Yay. Totally Yay.

I don't whether this Bolton is a good guy or not; but if Chafee opposes Bush he has my blessings. Yes, I'm easy.

Bolton is definitely not good. Here's a little of his record. And now he's gone! :)

Too bad we can't trade Chafee for Coker.

Or Lieberman, for that matter. I really don't think this is the last we see of Chafee, though.

No, I agree with patchfire: I would *love* to trade Chafee for Corker. For Lieberman, too, but moreso before the election. Lieberman will caucus with the Dems, says he (as much as he ever did). I am hearing rumblings of Chafee (finally?!) changing parties...and to Democrat, rather than Independent, which is what I would have expected. They are rumors, though. I also love Senator Chafee. I hope he runs and wins again as a Dem or an Independent.

My gut says he's going to go Independent, but I won't complain if he ends up a Democrat. It was an asset, actually, to have him in the Senate as a Republican, because he voted his conscience and filled a seat that might have been filled by a neocon (although I'm not sure what neocons are actually realistic contenders from such a blue state as RI).

I hope Lieberman ends up a help instead of a hindrance. I'll have to wait and see, I guess.

Bob Corker: He Goes Both Ways! And Blames Canada!

Seriously, beyond all the other reasons any left-thinking person wouldn't want him in there, he completely changed traffic patterns in downtown Chattanooga, simulataneously screwing the poor people and lining his own pocket. I can't forgive him any time I go back to Chattanowhere and there are people driving south on McCallie and north on Bailey... (hence the "goes both ways!")

Oh, and I told primroseburrows that I was going to gang up with you so that we could make her watch The West Wing. ;)

There are worse things than Lieberman, for sure. Heck, how about one of my senators? There wasn't an senatorial election in my state this year, but I could easily be persuaded to get rid of Isakson or Chambliss. *gags*

It will be interesting to see where Chafee pops up again. :)

Saw this on DKos and smiled for you and R.I. Well done, Senator!
