As expected, Dr. Rice has been confirmed.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 26 - Condoleezza Rice was easily confirmed as secretary of state today, overcoming charges from some Democrats that she had been a disingenuous architect of a failed administration policy in Iraq.
The Senate voted, 85 to 13, to confirm Ms. Rice, who will succeed Colin L. Powell and will be the first black woman to serve as the United States’ top diplomat. Ms. Rice is to be sworn in tonight in a private session at the State Department and sworn in again at a public ceremony on Thursday.
I didn’t talk about the hearings last week because it was nothing but Boxer and Kerry crying like little children. I was so disgusted by them that it lead to me being pretty much speechless.
Now that Dr. Rice has been confirmed, it is expected she will be sworn in tonight and make her way to the State Department tomorrow.
On a side note that I won’t go too deep into, the article was mostly negative with only a few positive points to Dr. Rice’s favor.
