Change! Obama Appoints His Sister to White House Commission

Nepotism you can believe in. Also appointed to this "diverse, non-partisan" group are Tom Daschle, Wesley Clark, Paul Sarbanes and (ahem) NBC's Tom Brokaw.

Some diversity.
Today, President Obama appointed 28 members to the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. This accomplished group of citizens representing a broad range of backgrounds, interests, and professions are responsible for recommending a group of exceptional men and women to the President for selection as White House Fellows. The commission will be chaired by John Phillips, a partner at Phillips and Cohen Law Firm. Cheryl Dorsey, President of Echoing Green, will vice-chair the commission. A full list of commissioners and their biographies can be found below.

"The men and women of this commission embody what makes the White House Fellows program so special," said President Obama. "These leaders are diverse, non-partisan, and committed to mentoring our next generation of public servants. I'm confident that they will select a class of White House Fellows that demonstrate extraordinary leadership, strong character, and a deep commitment to serving their country."
Also included are others with backgrounds at NPR and MSNBC.

Gotta love all that diversity.
