  • Nothing is up to Obama. The president has no control over the cabinet, he just makes recommendations. It's up to Congress to approve them. This is only a technicality, though. The senator in question does not want her approved by a unanimous vote, so it will go to a floor vote and a majority will let her have the job.

  • There is 1 member that said it is a conflict of interest with Bill Clinton work, but they also said she is expected to be seated tomorrow.
