Oh Really, Chuck?
Senator Chuck Hagel last month:nnI intend to support John Boltons nomination to be Ambassador to the United Nations. His experience and knowledge will serve him well as he represents Americas interests in the U.N. at a critically important time. Mr. Boltons commitment to consult with members of Congress on a regular basis will be essential in helping him strengthen the U.N. and moving it toward reform. n n He has the confidence of the President and the Secretary of State and I believe he will be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. nnnSenator Chuck Hagel last week:nnSen. Chuck Hagel, RNebraska, told CNN's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer" that he will support Bolton "if there's nothing more that comes out."
"I have been troubled with more and more allegations, revelations, coming about his style, his method of operation," said Hagel, the committee's secondranking Republican.
"We need a uniter. We need a builder. We need someone who will reach out to our friends and our allies at the United Nations," Hagel said. "No question the United Nations needs reform. It badly needs reform. But we need someone who will go up there and develop confidence with the other ambassadors."
