FILE - In this July 17, 2013 file photo U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. nominee Samantha Power testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Senate easily confirmed President Barack Obama's selection for ambassador to the United Nations on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013, capping a month in which senators used a bipartisan truce on once-mired nominations to fill a cluster of vacancies in the president's second-term administration. Senators approved Samantha Power for the post by 87-10. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)
