Ha, ha. I think it is a hoot that John Bolton's rise to the position of US Amabassador to the UN will happen through non-democratic means (through a recess appointment by George Bush.)
There is a chance that Bolton's abrasive style is exactly what we need to start to help get the UN back onto its classical liberal track. There have been cases where critics have turned to be good administrators.
One thing is certain. For the upcoming year, the United Nations will be interesting.
