When NewsMax is reporting that John Bolton is dead in the water, you know it’s pretty much a done deal.
There had been indications that Bolton might win Senate confirmation after the election when several key votes might be open to favoring Bolton. But the GOP’s apparent loss of the Senate has doomed that hope.
The White House is sending the Bolton nomination to the Senate this week while Republicans are still in control, but a source close to the U.S. mission to the U.N. tells NewsMax “This nomination is dead and we have known it for several days.”
Looks like Bolton might be the last one to go, as he was one of the more controversial figures in the White House gang.
What about Cheney? He’s obviously staying put. Condi ain’t going anywhere either.
Stay tuned, though…you never know what the GOP may do…
