While some are saying this:

President George W. Bush will make a push to get confirmation for John Bolton as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations before power in Congress shifts to the Democrats, the White House said on Thursday.

The White House formally renewed its request that the Senate take up Bolton’s nomination. But Jim Manley, a spokesman for Senate Democrats, said they continued to resist Bolton’s confirmation and “he is unlikely to get a vote any time soon.”

Is a sign of some kind of deal where Rummy was traded for Bolton. I don’t buy it.

We still have Biden saying:

Democratic Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware, the expected chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in a Democrat-led Senate, said on Wednesday he thought Bolton’s nomination was “going nowhere.”

“I never saw a real enthusiasm on the Republican side to begin with. There’s none on our side,” Biden said.

Plus we still have Chafee acting like a jacka#$ till the end:

Sen. Lincoln Chafee, R-R.I., who was defeated by Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse on Tuesday, told reporters in Rhode Island on Thursday that he would continue opposing Bolton. That would deny Republicans the votes they would need to move Bolton’s nomination from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to the full Senate.

Either they didn’t get the memo or the speculation is not warranted. What I believe is that Bush decided to go on offense. The Democrats are all talking about getting stuff done and working together, lets see it materialize.

Let the Rats filibuster and make fools of themselves.

Two fulls years of absolutely NOTHING getting done to look forward to.
