John Bolton is going to be confirmed

The U.S. Senate will confirm &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/world/2005/05/12/59707.html ' target=_blank>John Bolton as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations when it returns from a weeklong recess and Democratic requests for more information are "just an excuse" to further delay, Vice President &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/hotspots/2002/04/11/27587.html ' target=_blank>Dick Cheney said on Monday.

In an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live," Cheney said he was confident Senate Republican leaders would gather the votes to end debate on the contested nomination. Republican efforts to do so last week ended four votes shy of the 60 needed. Two senators did not vote.

"We've got the votes to confirm him. I'm convinced we will get him confirmed," Cheney said. "We just need three more and I think we'll get those when they come back."

On Thursday the Senate put off the vote on Bolton after Democrats demanded the Bush administration hand over more information that may show Bolton tried to misuse U.S. intelligence to promote his hawkish views. Bolton, a favorite of conservatives, is currently the top U.S. diplomat for arms control, tells Reuters.
