DeMint votes to confirm Hill

In the voice vote, Vitter was the only "No".

UPDATE: The AP explains DeMint's "yes" vote:

Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., said he too remains wary that contributions to the Clinton charity could pose a problem. But, he added, he wouldn't stand in the way of her appointment and noted that Clinton could become one of the nation's best secretaries of state to date.
