DeMint: "I have no questions" about Hillary's integrity

The media was hyping a show-down at today's confirmation hearing between South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint and Hillary Clinton, despite the fact DeMint praised her last week.

Glenn Thrush:

Hillary Clinton's recent phone call to Jim DeMint seems to have done the trick. The South Carolina Republican, who was expected to hit the Clintons hard on the foundation, spent all of 30 seconds saying he agreed with Lugar, then moved on to a query on streamlining Foggy Bottom.

DeMint: "Despite the news accounts, I have no questions about your integrity... I would support Sen. Corker and others who support your nomination—enough said."
