John R. Bolton was appointed U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations by President George W. Bush on August 1, 2005, because the U.S. Senate had failed to confirm his nominee. Bush nominated Bolton on March 7, 2005, to replace John C. Danforth, who resigned November 22, 2004.

"Mr. Bush took advantage of his power to fill vacancies without senate approval while Congress is in recess. Under the constitution, Mr. Bolton's recess appointment during the senators' August break will last until the next session of Congress, which begins in January 2007." [1]
