In an appearance on Fox News, Bolton said that Clinton’s claim that she had fainted because of the flu, hitting her head and suffering a concussion, was what foreign service officers call a “diplomatic illness,” intended to free a diplomat from an unpleasant duty. Clinton was supposed to appear before congressional foreign affairs committees on Thursday to respond to questions about whether security failures opened the way for the Sept. 11 attack.

I hadn't heard of this illness before.

Stopped reading at "Bolton".

We wish: instead he actually showed up and ran his mouth.

To be fair a bit less international diplomatic ring kissing would be a welcome change but he tended to go too far as I recall.

But re the OP, she can't actually duck Congress forever so there'd be no point, plus on the Republicans main issue: the election is long gone. What? They gonna ask her to step down?

Maybe not in the literal sense, but IMO Hillary has more balls than Bolton.  He is just a loud, boring, blowhard who likes the limelight a bit too much.  

As if testifying before Congress would bother Hillary.

Bolton is a product of his society -- for better and for worse.   Tiny Tahiti would never, ever send a Bolton to represent its interests in the UN.

Good that Bolton got nowhere -- even when representing the world's sole super power.  Hate to see bad behavior succeed.

Being more of a total bloodsport fan I'd prefer Bolten-Clinton (Hillary).

That would be a good one.  They'd both get bloodied I suspect.

Opening his mouth without thinking and looking like an idiot.

Prime example as to why Bolton was such an abject failure in his job.
