DeMint says Obama has changed Honduras policy

An outspoken critic of the Obama administration's handling of the crisis in Honduras late Thursday dropped his opposition to two State Department nominees, saying that the administration has reversed course. South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint said on the Senate floor that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had told him the U.S. would recognize Honduras' Nov. 29 election "regardless of whether former President Manuel Zelaya is returned to office."
