** Bolton Update ** - Not Time for Leach

Make sure you read my post of earlier today - Blogging for Bolton.

But now time for an update. The AP (via FoxNews) is reporting that "in the new spirit of bipartisanship" defeated Republican Sen. Jim Leach may be the next U.N. ambassador.

A House Republican and Democrat, in the new spirit of bipartisanship, are urging President Bush to name defeated Republican Rep. Jim Leach to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Rep. Jim Walsh (NY) is the Republican half of the Dynamic Duo - along with Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) - said this about Leach:

"I can't think of any American better qualified to represent our interests
before the United Nations," said Rep. Jim Walsh, R-N.Y."

Do you agree with Walsh? This is the Leach record:

But Leach may not be helped by his record of being near the top of those Republicans who vote most often with Democrats. In 2002 he was one of six House
Republicans to vote against the resolution authorizing the use of force in Iraq, and he was among the first Republicans to call for a military withdrawal from Iraq.

This should only add fuel to the movement to save Bolton. Keep making those calls!!
