Bolton and the UN

So the Bolton vote is postponed?? I don't know exactly what is going on here, but everyone really needed to understand that the Bolton nomination is not a sign of the end of the UN. I read somewhere that a Democratic congressman (whose name is escaping me at the moment) thinks that John Bolton is there to break the UN. Instead, Bolton is a serious nomination meaning that the President is trying to repair the UN, or at least that he isn't ready to throw it under the bus. I somewhat disagree with the PResident on this because I haven't seen the UN being very useful in most of its current capacity. But I do appreciate that it has good potention and I think that with Bolton there, perhaps some of this potential can be realized.
