Unsourced claim removed from article[edit]

Despite his appointment to the FDA, von Eschenbach initially wanted to retain his position of Director at the National Cancer Institute, where some have questioned his scientific objectivity.[citation needed]

Cantwell/Clinton opposition[edit]

The article says:

On August 1, 2006, Senators Clinton and Cantwell announced they would block his nomination to be the permanent FDA commissioner because of his department's failure to act on the application by Barr Pharmaceuticals to sell Plan B over-the-counter.

However both of those Senators voted to confirm him. The linked CNN article seems to no longer exist, and I can't find any other information on this. Is this statement correct? And if so, is there information on why they changed their minds? In the end, 11 people voted against his nomination, 10 of them Republicans, and the eleventh Max Baucus. --Delirium 08:32, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
