POLITICAL INSIDER: John Bolton weighs a WH run

By PHILIP ELLIOTT, Associated Press Writer Philip Elliott, Associated Press Writer – Fri Sep 10, 3:32 am ET

WASHINGTON – Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton says he's considering a White House run.

President George W. Bush's top arms control official and later the nation's top diplomat at the U.N., Bolton told Fox Business Network on Thursday that he is weighing a White House bid against President Barack Obama in 2012 because he feels national security has faded from the public debate.

"I am thinking about it because I think legitimate issues of national security should be more at the center of the national debate than they have been for the last two years," said Bolton, who also worked for the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations.

I read your post yesterday, and I am still trying to wrap my poor little head around that prospect.

But then if the world is supposed to end anyway, why bother with an election?

Palin and Bolton both scare me - but I wonder if Bolton can get along with anyone long enough to make it to the primaries?
