98-1 confirmation vote for Mattis. Awesome.
Who voted against?
Gillibrand, citing duration from service I believe.
Which all things considered, isn't an unreasonable reason to keep it from being unanimous if you know he's easily going to be confirmed.
Not at all unreasonable. I don't understand some voting against his waiver, but then voting to confirm him, but it matters little.
I hope he lives up to the hype, and believe he will.
In the context of the other cabinet nominees, he's a slam dunk. There is no doubt he can do the job.
He might be one of the best cabinet nominees in history. Hopefully Trump keeps his isolation views and he just gets to be the badass over the military for the deterrent
Trump needs Mattis.
