Jim Bridenstine shouldn't necessarily expect smooth sailing now that 
he's finally in as NASA administrator, experts say.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Bridenstine on April 19, more than seven 
months after President Donald Trump nominated the Oklahoma congressman 
for NASA's top post. The final vote was 50-49 and strictly along party 
lines, with all Republicans supporting Bridenstine and all Democrats, 
along with both independents, opposing him. (Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., 
is sidelined by health issues and did not vote.)
