The soft side of john Bolton

"The Senate should reject President Bush’s nomination of Bolton as U.N. ambassador – and not just because he’s a schoolyard bully. Over a dozen government officials who worked with Bolton have testified to his abusive treatment of staff. Because of Bolton’s frequent, out-of-control bursts of temper, even Colin Powell, his former boss at the State Department, refuses to endorse him. And you must question the judgment, if not the sanity, of any boss who chases a female subordinate through the halls of a Moscow hotel, shouting and throwing ashtrays at her. No doubt, Bolton is not a nice guy. But that alone doesn’t disqualify him."
