Mattis takes another step toward Tampa


Gen James N. Mattis was confirmed today by voice vote in the Senate Armed Services Committee to become commanding general of U.S. Central Command.

The next step is confirmation by the full Senate, which could happen tonight but is more likely to happen tomorrow because the Senate is busy, busy, busy trying to get out of town for the August recess.

Mattis is expected to sail through his confirmation, process no matter what. So my bet is that he’s got his bags and his books packed, his cover in place and a foot out the door with coordinates for sunny Tampa, Fla., punched into his GPS.
