Anyone hear Tim Wirth on C-Span's Wa Journal this a.m. about UN?
Advertisements [?]
He's head of the UN Foundation which is funded by Ted Turner. Did I hear him correctly saying Bolton would be a good pick for the Ambassador? And what about his praise for a book that Gingrich wrote with Mitchell about UN reform?

I didn't hear the whole interview, but was bothered by what I heard...anyone have more info..what did you think?

Now they've got a RWinger from Indiana on Mike Spence who's trashing the UN so I guess Wirth and Spence are on this morning to pressure Senators to hang in to vote for Bolton? Not good news.

Spence sounds like one of those freaky RW'ers talking about "Tough Love" for the UN. He didn't even answer a caller saying why aren't we investigating 9/11,the missing money and instead are using the UN as a whipping boy for our own failures.

But, where do he and Wirth differ except on whether money should be witheld or not.
