The U.S. Senate approved the Hilary Clinton nomination for Secretary of State today, by a 94-2 vote. There was some opposition due to a possible conflict of interest that could be caused by Hilary Clinton's husband, Bill Clinton, and his charitable foundation, but Bill Clinton had signed an agreement to limit his donations in order to make his wife eligible for the job.
