WASHINGTON –If you’re looking for any inkling of bipartisanship in Washington, don’t count on  the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The committee voted 11-7  Thursday to confirm the nomination of  Dawn E. Johnsen as Office of Legal Counsel for the Justice Department.

All the Republicans voted against her except for Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.), who passed on the vote. He said he was reserving judgment until he got a better sense of her views.

Johnsen,  an Indiana University law professor has been a big critic of the Bush administration’s policies. Johnsen still faces a confirmation by the full Senate.
