"The United States can do better than John Bolton," Voinovich said

Should be case closed right?

"I am not so arrogant to think that I should impose my judgment and perspective (on) the U.S. position in the world community on the rest of my colleagues. We owe it to the president to give Mr. Bolton an up or down vote on the floor of the United States Senate."

It's not a question of arrogance, it's a question of qualification. What is the point of voting in these committees anyway if you recuse yourself from the process?

Can you help us out?
