Senator to Hillary Clinton: Hell To The Naw!

Yesterday Hillary Clinton’s confirmation for Secretary of State was put on pause by a Texas Senator.

Via AP:

The confirmation of Hillary Rodham Clinton to be secretary of state will be held up for at least a day due to the objection of a single senator. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he wanted “a full and open debate and an up-or-down vote on Sen. Clinton’s nomination.”

He said important questions remain unanswered concerning the foundation headed by former President Bill Clinton “and its acceptance of donations from foreign entities. Transparency transcends partisan politics and the American people deserve to know more.”

Cornyn’s spokesman Kevin McLaughlin said the senator is not trying to block her confirmation, but is seeking more debate on the donation issue.

Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Majority Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that if a voice vote is blocked there will be a roll call vote Wednesday. He predicted that “she will receive overwhelming bipartisan support at that time.”

The Senate does plan to confirm several of President-elect Barack Obama’s Cabinet by unanimous vote later Tuesday.

Several Republicans raised questions at Clinton’s confirmation hearing about possible conflicts of interest from Bill Clinton‘s fundraising work and his acceptance of large donations from foreign countries and companies.

Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana, top Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, urged Clinton to improve transparency in her husband’s fundraising activities. He said the former president’s foundation should stop taking foreign contributions while Clinton serves as secretary of state. McLaughlin said Cornyn has asked Clinton to take similar steps.

In her testimony, Clinton said the foundation would provide a clearer picture of its annual donations.

    I think the Texas Senator is probably mad that his ol’ tale wasn’t nominated for the Secretary seat!
