Lugar's calling for a vote. It's 4:35pm....Sarbannes is asking why they have to vote now if they have 'til 5pm....We could use the time for debate. The Chairman has moved to short circuit this entire process.

Voinovich: I heard enough today that I don't feel comfortable today voting for Mr. Bolton. ...I don't feel comfortable voting today on Mr. John Bolton. Maybe it would be in the best interest of this committee to take a little time. I can feel the passion (from the other side of the aisle).

Laura has much more on the entire day!

I put up what I could. It was a long proceeding...More coming later tonight.

Can you help us out?
