White House does not rule out Bolton recess appointment

The White House on Monday did not rule out the possibility of sidestepping the Senate by naming John Bolton as U.N. ambassador in a recess appointment, as it urged an up-or-down Senate vote on the nomination.

"It is critical that we get him in place," White House spokesman Scott McClellan said of Bush's controversial nominee.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice hinted on Sunday that President Bush could install Bolton to the U.N. post through a temporary recess appointment. "We'll see what happens this week," she told "Fox News Sunday."
