In a 94 Yes, 2 No (Vitter and DeMint) vote on the Senate floor, Hillary Clinton was confirmed as Secretary of State, today, Wednesday, January, 21, 2009.

Sigh. I feel grounded and strong that we are all as a country, finally, in good hands.

I’ve been live-blogging with my fellow Conflucians re: the debate goings on, beginning at about 930 am, then again at about 2:15 in the comments. I hate to send you away, but in lieu of typing up my notes, a time-consuming effort, you can check through comment thread here.

At last, I can breathe a deep sigh of relief and am going to work out!
