As I think I've mentioned here before, Steve Clemons is the go-to guy on all things Bolton. Steve lives at the Washington Note.
He's now also hanging out at the TPM Cafe and had some interesting insights today on the status of Bolton's nomination. Basically, he thinks it's dead.
Many speculate that Bush will make a recess appointment this weekend. Steve says maybe but speculates that Bolton may not want that.
Steve also notes that outside of Cheney's office, Bolton isn't even liked or supported in the admin.
