Clinton Confirmed as Secretary of State After Cornyn Drops Foundation Information Request

After initially holding up Hilary Clinton's nomination to be U.S. Secretary of State, Senator John Cornyn (R-Tex.) dropped his request for more information about Clinton's husband's charitable foundation.  Cornyn's action cleared the way for Clinton's final senate vote on January 21, 2009.  For the entire story about Clinton's and other Obama nominations, see "Republicans Obstruct Holder's Path to Justice Dept." in the January 22, 2009, issue of the Washington Post.
