where the writers are

Harvard University's Institute of Politics today announced a stellar list of fellows for the spring term. They include;

Former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, Obama for America Campaign Manager David Plouffe, former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, Washington Post Columnist Eugene Robinson, Rose Styron, poet, jounalist and human rights activist (widow of writer William Styron),veteran political organizer Teresa Vilmain, and others.

During the course of an academic semester these Fellows interact with students, engage in the intellectuall life of the Harvard Community and pursue individual studies or project.

The interaction between Plouffe and Vilmain should be of particular interest inasmuch as Plouffe is currently writing a book on the Obama campaign and Vilmain was the Clinton field director in Iowa. Rose Styron, well, remains a gem.
