Just Too Many Unanswered Questions

Hillary Clinton was recommended for confirmation as Secretary of State by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today by a 16-1 vote. The one no vote? David Vitter.

Sen. David Vitter , R-La., was the only member to vote against the nomination, and he did so by proxy. In a statement released before the vote, Vitter said, “Sen. Clinton is certainly a smart, capable colleague, and I take no pleasure in voting against her confirmation. But I must do so for one compelling reason. I believe President Clinton’s business and foundation dealings are a multi-million dollar minefield of conflicts of interest. And this could produce explosions at any minute, particularly concerning the Middle East where we least need them.”

Yes, it wouldn't be good to have someone in a position of power with so many unanswered questions. For example, Pampers or Huggies?
