Powell. In his office. With the telephone.

The mysterious death of John Bolton's nomination has been solved!

From yesterday's gaggle:
Q You said the President was 100 percent in his backing of Bolton today. Can we infer from that, that the President simply doesn't believe these allegations that have been made about Bolton..."

MR. McCLELLAN: These are unsubstantiated accusations that Senate Democrats continue to bring up. ... It is time to move forward on his nomination, and the President wanted to make it clear today that the Senate needs to quit playing politics, and they need to move forward and confirm this person.

Q And the President simply does not believe the allegations.

MR. McCLELLAN: John, these are unsubstantiated accusations against John Bolton...."

From today's NYT
April 21 - President Bush on Thursday issued a strong new defense of John R. Bolton, his nominee as ambassador to the United Nations. But associates of Colin L. Powell, the former secretary of state, said he had expressed reservations about Mr. Bolton in conversations with at least two wavering Republican senators.

Will the moderate "normal" Republican's now get a Clue that a portion of their party is completely fucked up?
