According to CNN, it’s official.  By a vote of 94-22 no less, with only two republicans (Jim DeMint [SC] and David Vitter [LA]) voting against.

It actually wasn’t even supposed to happen this early; as the article states John Cornyn (R-TX) wanted more time to go over possible complications arising from Bill Clinton’s foundation, but a voice vote was forced by none other than John McCain, apprantly reminding both the nation and himself that is in fact a moderate. Which makes it hard to see this as a machiavellian move designed to avoid oversight, though I wouldn’t mind it. Judging by the existing arrangement (clinton foundation donor list is released to the admin, he doesn’t make any foreign policy speeches/trips without the admin’s consent) will probably be enough to make sure Hillary is clean upon entry.
