Associated Press: The Senate is expected to consider several of President Barack Obama's Cabinet nominees Wednesday. A vote to confirm Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state, whose confirmation was blocked Tuesday by Republican John Cornyn of Texas, is expected Wednesday.

Timothy Geithner, the nominee to head the Treasury Department, faces the Senate Finance Committee, where he will have to explain his initial failure to pay payroll taxes he owed while working for the International Monetary Fund.

The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider the nomination of Eric Holder as Obama's attorney general. And the Commerce Committee will hold a confirmation hearing for Ray LaHood as transportation secretary.
