Bolton Showdown Likely Tonight

From MSNBC, on the last final push against the Bolton nomination. On this one, the best thing you can do is call your senators pretty much immediately:

"WASHINGTON - In a last-ditch effort, two Democratic senators, Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut, and Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, worked Thursday to round up the 41 votes needed to stop President Bush's nomination of John Bolton to be U.S. envoy to the United Nations.

The Senate is set to vote at 6 pm Thursday on a motion to end debate and then would proceed immediately to a straight up-or-down vote on Bolton’s nomination.

If Bolton loses the cloture vote on ending debate, his confirmation would be delayed for at least a week, until the Senate returns from its Memorial Day recess.

"It'll be very close," predicted Biden Thursday afternoon."
