Another Consequence of the Coakley Race: Dawn Johnsen
Dawn Johnsenís nomination cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee months ago, and with Arlen Specterís support her confirmation has been thought to be all but assured. Nevertheless, with the re-nomination process, Republicans will seek additional hearings, a perfect opportunity for them to fearmonger on terrorism.
All but assured if Coakley wins the Massachusetts Senate race. Otherwise, we are back where we started - Republican Dick Lugar supports Johnsen but Nebraska Dem Ben Nelson opposes and will not allow a floor vote on the Johnsen nomination to head the OLC.
Speaking for me only
