Washington Post: “Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who announced the nomination, alluded to Bolton’s reputation when she noted that “some of our best ambassadors” to the United Nations have been those with “the strongest voices,” such as Jeane Kirkpatrick and Daniel Patrick Moynihan.”

Secretary-General Annan welcomed the choice: “United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today warmly congratulated John Bolton on his nomination to be the next United States Permanent Representative to the world body and looks forward to working with him on UN reform, among other issues.”
