Bolton Looking Weaker

After the cloture vote on the Bolton nomination failed to muster 60 votes, Joe Biden said that the Democrats were ready to vote, just as soon as the Bush administration came through with the requested documents and transcripts:
We're ready to vote the day we get back, the moment we get back..if the administration is more forthcoming in meeting us halfway.
Well, Congress came back from recess and no vote was called. No vote has been scheduled. Steve Clemons is saying out loud what others are too timid to contemplate: the John Bolton nomination is looking weaker and weaker. Those in Washington who are used to the BushCheney Corp. getting its way have trouble comprehending that Bolton may never get to the UN.
