The Senate Armed Services Committee has voted in favor of Gen. David Petraeus to become the next commander of the Afghanistan war.

The panel vote paves the way for his swift confirmation by the full Senate.

Republicans and Democrats alike praised Petraeus during a hearing Tuesday. Petraeus, who heads U.S. Central Command, replaces Gen. Stanley McChrystal. McChrystal was fired last week after he and his top aides were quoted in a Rolling Stone article making disparaging remarks about their civilian counterparts in the administration.
