Timing is everything
Another interesting comment from Scott McClellan in this same report on the troubled Bolton nomination:
"Democrats continue to bring these accusations up and trump them up and make unfounded allegations, and we need to get John Bolton to the United Nations because this is an important position. We need to get him there sooner rather than later," McClellan said.
Um, what's the rush Scotty? What exactly does Bolton bring to the UN table that is so vital for the administration? Is there some kind of schedule the administration needs to meet that requires Bolton to be their "sooner rather than later"? Does he have some special insight into administration policy on some issue that will soon be a hot topic at the UN?
