3. That may be the case
There were a number of nominations that cleared the Senate with a voice vote yesterday.

It is my understanding that this "debate" will in no way threaten the confirmation of Sen. Clinton for Sec of State. However, it is the right of a Senator to object to the voice vote and tease the confirmation out into a recorded vote.

There are 3 hours of debate scheduled for this with a simple majority vote scheduled for later.

Sen. Kerry, as Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is floor managing the debate on this nomination.
