Sen. John McCain is imploring his Republican colleagues to drop partisan demands and let the popular president get to work.

The Arizona Republican made his first comments on the Senate floor since his rival, President Barack Obama, was sworn into office.

He said the nation has come together in a way that it has not for some time. McCain was speaking in defense of Hillary Rodham Clinton's appointment as the next secretary of State.

Senate leaders had planned to confirm her by unanimous consent on Tuesday, but Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn objected because of concerns raised about foreign contributions to her husband's charity.

A roll call vote was planned for late Wednesday.
