Senate Confirms Obama’s Choice to Lead V.A.
The Senate voted unanimously on Tuesday to confirm Robert A. McDonald, the 61-year-old former chief executive of Procter & Gamble, to take the helm of the sprawling and embattled Department of Veterans Affairs after a scandal over the manipulation of patient wait-time data led to the ouster two months ago of Eric Shinseki.
In picking Mr. McDonald, who was confirmed by a vote of 97 to 0, President Obama is betting that the West Point graduate and business executive has the leadership, force of will and management savvy to overhaul a $154-billion-a-year department in a political environment where Congress may not be willing to provide the agency with all of the money its officials have said it needs.
