Why did the GOP not try to get Bolton passed before starting the judicial fight? It seems he would have been easy to pass before (he has a majority), but might be difficult to pass after (the Democrats might filibuster or otherwise block him if they lose the judicial fight).

I can only think of one reason so far: there's reports that Rehnquist might step down soon, and the GOP really wants to have this current fight won before that happens. I dunno, I feel like there's something missing.
