Kagan Confirmed as SG; Johnsen Moves to Full Senate for OLC

The Senate confirmed Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan as solicitor general by a 61-31 vote yesterday.  Kagan will be the nation's first female solicitor general.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted yesterday 11-7 on the nomination of Dawn Johnsen, Indiana U. Law prof., to head the Office of Legal Counsel.  Johnsen would be the first female head of the OLC.  She's likely to face stiff resistance on the Senate floor, however, in part because of her work for NARAL.
