Early positive reviews from the conservative side on John Bolton. WSJ opinion page
[*1] approves:So we can only assume that Mr. Annan was sincere yesterday when he welcomed President Bush's decision to nominate John Bolton to succeed John Danforth as U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. As the media wasted no time in explaining, Mr. Bolton is a "hard-liner," guilty of such violations of diplomatic protocol as calling North Korea "a hellish nightmare" ruled by a "tyrannical dictator." More such violations will be required if Mr. Bolton's mission is to succeed.
The Freepers[*2] are happy (a bit giddy, actually, going off onto an Office Space[*3] tangent).
The reactionary liberal side is not quite so happy--Council for a Livable World[*4] , Counterpunch[*5] , and the little-known Center for American Progress[*6] .
