“The Democrats claim they are tired of the fierce partisanship that has shaped the debate in Washington the last six years. They even want to play nice with the president. So, one of the first things they can do to prove their good intentions is to confirm John Bolton as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations,” the Chicago Sun-Times said Nov. 14 in an editorial.
“Bolton has done an exemplary job at the U.N. He succeeded in getting resolutions to impose sanctions on North Korea; he brokered a Security Council resolution to end the war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon,” the newspaper said.
“If the Democrats are genuine about working in a collegial manner with the president, they will endorse Bolton: He has turned out to be far more co-operative than divisive. He is, in fact, an able diplomat.”
