Voinovich shocker!

unless i heard something wrong on c-span i think republican senator george voinovich from ohio will be voting against the nomination of bolton for UN ambassador...this is a shocker.. you could hear a pin drop after he was done speaking.. everyone expected him to come back with "but i will support the president regardless of these reservations" but he stuck to his "he's not the best man for the job" guns... very ballsy...

unless i'm missing something this means a tied vote in the senate foreign relations committee which means no confirmation and the nomination would go to the floor of the senate where the democrats may choose to fillibuster...
