Bush Accepts Bolton's U.N. Resignation

Posted Dec 4, 2006 by Andrew Majewski

Unable to win Senate confirmation, U.N. Ambassador John Bolton will step down when his recess appointment expires soon, the White House said Monday.
The White House has been looking for anyway to get him confirmed for the position. With the Dems. taking control of the senate though, it would just continue to be an uphill climb to get him confirmed. They thought of ways to get him another position just to get Bolton a job. He has not been confirmed up to this point due to his beeing too combative to be successful with diplomacy.
