WASHINGTON (CNN) - The U.S. Senate approved the nomination of Hillary Clinton as secretary of state Wednesday by a vote of 94-2.
The two no votes came from Republican Sens. David Vitter of Louisiana and Jim DeMint of South Carolina.
These two zeros voted "no" because "yes" is a tougher three letter word.
The Republicans did this on purpose. They delayed Hillary's confirmation so that their person who was delayed from parking could listen in to Obama's talking points at the meeting he held today with his National Security team. Talk of playing politics with our lives. I guess the Republicans didn't get the lesson yet. You keep messing with the American people you keep paying until you're left with one person in the Senate.
CONGRATS!! WELL DESERVED. So thankful to have her leadership !
they must feel very lonely in their partisant behaviour
FIGURES! The Republicans are still bitter.
boy those 2 votes really went south!
If you watched the "debate" you can see why nothing gets done. A bunch of old, long winded individuals that say the same thing over and over again, with little substance.
David Vitter? Is this the same David Vitter whose lack of sound judgement led to the infamous podium walk with his spouse by his side to apologize to the fair voters of his district. Way to stand on principle, David!
Congratulations Madame Secretary!
Oh boy... now we can begin the change BO promised!!! Clintons get to pretty much run with it now and we will call go back to the 90's... (if we are lucky).
Clinton is competent and will do a good job.
David Vitter, you are a sorry excuse for a human being and you should resign! I hope your wife leaves you. Something must be wrong with her too.
Go Hillary! That is great success. She will do wonders to restore our image around the world.
Smart, bold, experienced – of course it was 94-2.
Don't let all the sexist haters and those repeating the old neo-con conspiracy mythologies get you down!
Great news for America....Hillary will work hard for all of us.
FANTASTIC!!!! Over the past 2 days I have been so proud of my country. The world is watching and I can't wait for them to see the new America. America of the People!
I cannot belive that they are still playing games with our country the should just confirm the nominees so this usa can start moving
Mark my word......before the Obama Administration is 18-months old, "Billary" will be ousted. (The Clintons serve "no one" except the Clintons.)
Go Hillary! Change is happening!!
Let's hope she has what it takes. The Clinton Administration was not known for going after terrorists.
Good. Still, it seems that we still have a few republicans who want to make it hard for everyone. The best of luck and success to Secretary of State Clinton.
And the GOP's stronghold, South Carolina, strikes again.
Vitter... I will remember this vote in 2010. That is $200 dollars contribution to your opponent.
I am sure that Bill will get loads of money pouring in to the Clinton Foundation in hopes of favors which I am sure will be given by the queen of NY.
God help us all.
Allright, we'll mark your words. Now, off to your little the hole you go, off you go.
