Clinton Confirmed 94 – 2!

Senate confirms Clinton as secretary of state

WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton won U.S. Senate approval on Wednesday as the next secretary of state, despite renewed Republican questions about potential conflicts of interest created by her husband’s foreign fundraising.

The Senate easily approved Clinton’s nomination to the post by President Barack Obama, clearing her to move quickly into her role as the country’s top diplomat. She will replace former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.(1)
