The Senate’s 94-2 vote to confirm Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State is a disgrace. There is no previous nominee, EVER, who has been confirmed for such a high post with so much ethical baggage PLUS so many conflicts of interest, past and present, including ones that directly relate to the post for which she was nominated, PLUS such a thin resume in the subject area, a resume rightly mocked last year by now-President Obama himself. In the Great Beyond, John Tower must be fuming, considering how less important (not unimportant, mind you, but just comparatively far less important) were the transgressions that blocked him from being confirmed to head the Pentagon.
Frankly, “disgrace” is not a strong enough word for the overwhelming confirmation vote. “Obscenity” is more like it. And all those senators who failed even to do due diligence, to ask a huge number of basic and very fair questions of HRC, have shown themselves utterly unserious about their own jobs. They should hang their heads in shame.
