Ringing endorsement for Bolton

Colin Powell's former chief of staff Lawrence Wilkerson gets quoted in the New York Times today, stating the following about our soon-to-be-confirmed U.N. ambassador, John "10 stories" Bolton:
"Under Secretary Bolton was never the formidable power that people are insinuating he was in terms of foreign policy, or blocking the policies that Secretary Powell wished to pursue.... But do I think John Bolton would make a good ambassador to the United Nations? Absolutely not.... He is incapable of listening to people and taking into account their views. He would be an abysmal ambassador."
