Blitzer Allows Dean To Slam Bush Team On North Korea Resolution Without Challenge

On Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer today, Howard Dean said that he had been watching UN ambassador "Josh Bolton" on all the morning shows talking tough about the UN resolution on North Korea that the Chinese have already said they're not going to fully enforce and he said it shows that the Bush administration is "toothless" when it comes to national security. When it came time for Blitzer to follow-up, he corrected Dean on what Bolton's first name really is but Blitzer failed to ask Dean the obvious question: how would he or other Democrats have gotten anything better out of the UN?

Video available here.

This question would have been particularly relevant since Dean had only moments earlier claimed that the Bush administration had not worked with the UN enough when it came to Iraq.
