Never known to back down from a fight, President Bush is again demonstrating that same non-compromising stubbornness inrepparttar John Bolton U.N. appointment fight.

All of this, even though some conservative senators don't like Bolton and along siderepparttar 144624 democrats, refuse to endrepparttar 144625 filibuster untilrepparttar 144626 Bush administration releases some secret documents.  When asked what it would take to endrepparttar 144627 filibuster, Trent Lott said "...simply forrepparttar 144628 White House to releaserepparttar 144629 documents requested."

What is in these documents that makesrepparttar 144630 Bush administration so reluctant to release them?

Yesterday, White House spokesman Scott McClellan claimed that they have released all ofrepparttar 144631 information THAT THE SENATE REQUIRES. 

"We've continued to make a good-faith effort. The Democrats clearly aren't interested in more information," McClellan said.
