Jeffrey LewisBolton Out?

John Bolton appears to be leaving for the private sector now that my old boss, Bob Zoellick, will be nominated as Deputy Secretary of State.

(Yes, I worked a bit for Zoellick at CSIS. We didn’t really click, as you might imagine.)

Don’t get all excited, though.

Reuter’s reports that Space-based Bob Joseph is in line to replace Bolton. That’s not much improvement.

(BTW, the brilliant portrait of Bolton is by Seth Kushner.)
