President "Reluctantly Accepting" Bolton Decision

ABC News' Jessica Yellin and Jonathan Karl Report: UN Ambassador John Bolton will end his service in the Bush administration when his appointment ends at the end of the 109th Congress.  Bolton will not be seeking another appointment.

A White House spokesman says, "It's a decision that the President is reluctantly accepting."

Bolton's resignation is effective this weekend.  Alex Wolff -- currently Bolton's deputy -- will serve as acting Ambassador until a successor is named.

The President will meet with Bolton and his wife Gretchen later this afternoon.
