WASHINGTON (CNN) -- By a vote of 95-2, the Senate approved President Bush's defense secretary nominee Wednesday, a day after the nomination sailed through the Armed Services Committee.

Robert Gates, a former CIA director, will be sworn in December 18.

Two Republican senators -- Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Jim Bunning of Kentucky -- cast the only no votes.

"He's the right guy at the right time," said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina.

During Wednesday's debate on the nomination, it seemed Democrats had been successfully wooed by Gates.

Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the Armed Services Committee, said he was "favorably impressed" by Gates' candor and forthrightness.
Here is an example of how true bipartisanship can work.

The Administration puts up reasonable appointments

they get approved by the senate.
Except for a couple of fringe wing-nuts.

It's certainly going to be interesting to see an administration that is checked and balanced, after it having been given a free ride for 6 years.

The guy must have some merit if Santorum voted against him.
