Bolton for President!

John Bolton, the US Ambassador to the UN continues to amaze me:

Following intense US pressure, the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday issued an unprecedented condemnation of Monday's Hezbollah attacks on northern Israel. This condemnation - slamming Hezbollah by name for acts of hatred - marked the first time the Security Council has ever reprimanded Hezbollah for cross-border attacks on Israel. The condemnation followed by two days a failed attempt to get a condemnation issued on Monday, the day of the attack, when Algeria came out against any mention of Hezbollah in the statement.

When asked what changed from Monday to Wednesday, one diplomatic official replied: John Bolton, a reference to the US ambassador to the UN.

Wow! How'd he get all the rest of the UN security council members to agree with him? Maybe he should be president.
