Bolton resigns

I'm disappointed by the resignation of John Bolton as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, but I don't fault Mr. Bolton at all. President Bush said the following:

They chose to obstruct his confirmation, even though he enjoys majority support in the Senate, and even though their tactics will disrupt our diplomatic work at a sensitive and important time. This stubborn obstructionism ill serves our country, and discourages men and women of talent from serving their nation.

Our Congress is hardly composed of "the best and brightest." There are a few strong folks in the mix, but the Kennedys, Bidens, and their ilk paint a depressing picture. It's no wonder Bolton declined any further attempts to work around their tactics.
