WASHINGTON (AP) - No barriers are in the way of Hillary Rodham
Clinton's confirmation as secretary of state. A full Senate vote is
expected next week, following today's 16-1 vote in her favor by the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
The only vote against her came from Louisiana Republican David
Vitter, who voiced concerns about possible conflicts of interest
caused by Bill Clinton's charitable fundraising.
In farewell remarks to the Senate today, the New York senator
said she's looking back with nostalgia and ahead with excitement.
