Senate Democrats have been intentionally dragging their feet in the confirmation process to make Trump’s first few days/weeks as President as difficult as possible. They think that by refusing to confirm his nominees in a timely fashion, they are somehow winning.
Real winning, however, is having your opponents forced into doing exactly what you want them to do, no matter how long they delay the inevitable.
From Young Conservatives:
Republicans were on the warpath today.
Democrats to slow down the nominees.
They were not successful.
One of the nominees who Democrats most wanted to defeat was Rex Tillerson.
Tillerson had been painted as too close to Russia by Democrats, with no governmental experience.
Republican pointed to his broad international business experience.
Democrats lost the battle.
From The Hill: 
The Senate on Wednesday approved Rex Tillerson to lead President Trump’s State Department, despite a late effort by Democrats to slow down the nomination.
Tillerson was approved in a 56-43 vote. Though Democrats largely lined up against Tillerson, he got some Democratic support.
Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mark Warner (Va.) and Independent Sen. Angus King (Maine) joined all Republicans in backing Trump’s nominee. Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) skipped the vote.
HA! Congratulations to Trump and Tillerson for the successful confirmation. Now we can get to work making the rest of the world great again as well!
