Now Get to Work!

After a lengthy delay (thanks Senate):
Obama's nominee to be under secretary of state for arms control and international security, Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-CA), and his pick to be assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, Kurt Campbell, were confirmed tonight in a unanimous consent motion, a congressional source relays.
Hopefully now they can get to work on nonproliferation treaties and taking care of East Asia. Not that those areas have had any difficulties while the posts were on hold!
Additional note: now that Tausher has been confirmed a primary date should be set for the CA-10 special election. That means Tony Woods' campaign is ramping up to full speed. Check out his website and do whatever you can to support him.
