NRO on Bolton Filibuster

As noted before, the Dems are filibustering John Bolton.

Does the Bolton Nomination represent "exceptional circumstances"?

Frank Gaffney explores Bolton's credentials. Excerpt:

. . . Republicans disagree with Democrats who do not want someone as principled, intelligent, effective, and competent advancing policies with which they adamantly disagree. Such policies are rooted, notably, in the proposition that the U.N. really does need to be “reformed.” For Bolton’s critics, this appears to be simply a dissembling politician’s obligatory throwaway line.

Like George W. Bush, Bolton believes that unless the dysfunctional ways that have made the U.N. a cesspool of corruption, malfeasance, and anti-Americanism can be corrected, the United States will continue to have to work around it, more often than with it, in order to safeguard our interests and promote international peace. . .

The memorandum of understanding applies only to judicial nominations. Bolton is not a judicial nominee.
