Texas Senator John Cornyn could slow the process down, but he couldn't hold back the inevitable.
Hillary Clinton has been officially confirmed as the Secretary of State…
Republicans and Democrats alike said her swift confirmation was necessary so that Obama could begin tackling the major foreign policy issues at hand, including two wars, increased violence in the Middle East and the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran.
"It is essential that we provide the president with the tools and resources he needs to effect change, and that starts with putting a national security team in place as soon as possible," said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.
Absolutely! Barack Obama is going to need all the help he can get in lying to the United Nations and deciding which foreign country to invade.
That is what secretaries of state do, right?
In other news, David paterson has almost just about kinda sorta figured out a way to place Caroline Kennedy in Clinton's empty senate seat and somehow make it seem like a good decision.
He's just tweaking the delivery a little bit, but he should be ready to give in to complete nepotism by the weekend.
