Vote on Bolton May Be Postponed

From today's Washington Post:
A committee vote on extending John R. Bolton's tenure as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations will probably be delayed until after the elections.

A vote "is not scheduled this week," said Andy Fisher, a spokesman for Sen. Richard G. Lugar (R-Ind.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. If the Senate finishes its business at the end of this week as scheduled, the panel would consider Bolton's nomination in the "lame-duck session" that will begin in November, Fisher said.
