Voinovich Takes Back Passionate Weeping
If you'll recall, the first time John Bolton was nominated to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, George Voinovich wept. His stated reason for weeping on the floor of the United States Senate was that the very future of his children and grandchildren was at stake. Well, apparently that has changed. Yep, he was so wrong in his pathetic opposition the first time, he has decided to change his vote. Voinovich must feel that this could have some VERY serious political repercussions, to feel the need to fix it now while his re-election campaign is very distant in the future. I agree with Hugh on why Bolton has been successful. I disagree that Voinovich is admitting or correcting anything other than his political course. He caused nearly irreparable harm to one of the President's most important nominees, damaged the unity of his party, and did everything except sell his soul to get some camera time and derail this nominee. At least there weren't any reports about behind-the-scenes soul selling.

I haven't forgotten George. Not just this, but all of your anti-conservative votes. Your primary opposition will be stronger than that of Mike DeWine, so if you're hoping to solidify your conservative credentials you had better work on that every day for the next 4 years.
