Big Bad John Cornyn Stands Up To Hillary Clinton

A bunch of President Bush Obama's cabinet nominees will be approved in a pro forma vote in Congress later today, but among them will not be Hillary Clinton.

Why? Our very own Senator John "Box Turtle" Cornyn, who apparently believes Clinton's appointment is some sneaky step towards gay marriage, since everything else is in his eyes.

Cornyn objected to including Clinton's name in the list of nominees who will be approved by unanimous consent this afternoon. He cited a wish for more transparency in foreign donations to her husband's foundation.

All those problems will be easily cleared up by tomorrow, when Clinton is expected to be confirmed in an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote.
