Mayor Bloomberg comes to Bolton's defense

John Bolton may be leaving his position as UN ambassador, thanks to the Senators who wouldn't approve a full time nomination for him, but is luckily finding defense from NYC mayor Bloomberg, doing something good now:
John Bolton may be on his way out as ambassador to the United Nations, but he may yet live on as an issue in the 2008 presidential campaign.

Mayor Bloomberg yesterday came to John Bolton's defense, calling the movement to block the U.N. ambassador's Senate confirmation a "cheap political stunt on the part of a handful of people."

Mr. Bloomberg called the holdup of Mr. Bolton's nomination, which led the envoy to resign Monday, a "disgrace" and "an outrage," and said "countries like America and Israel will suffer because they won't have John Bolton there."

"John Bolton was a guy that was standing up and trying to change the United Nations in a ways that would make it a lot more responsible," Mr. Bloomberg told reporters before touring the city's new emergency-operations bunker in Brooklyn. "Hopefully the president can find someone else with the same skills that will get through the Congress, but I think that it's not what the Founding Fathers meant when they talked about advice and consent."
Of course not. Bolton, I agree, did a much better job than many ambassadors of yore. At the same time, it's still important to note that the UN is not a worthy entity, and should be dismantled, as many have been arguing in recent years. Until it is, and countries who realize how worthless it really is pull out, that's why a good ambassador like Bolton is needed, and I think that there's a case here upon which to call for extending his tenure, and making him a full time ambassador as he should be.

That's exactly why either the Senate should start supporting his nomination, or at least finding someone with the same standings and talents.
