Who Picks White House Fellows?

On Crossfire earlier, Ted Danson noted that his wife, Mary Steenbergen, had gotten to know Wesley Clark when Clark and Steenbergen were both on the commission to select White House fellows. I’m not entirely sure why an actress would be selecting WH fellows—though I gather she was a Clinton pal and is from Arkansas. But, so were a lot of other people.

Anyhow, the current commission looks pretty cool (including our bodacious bud Bill McGurn and Myrna Blyth, author of the upcoming book Spin Sisters, who I think is an absolute rock star).

Deadline, btw, for the next fellowship class is Feb. 1. Just in case that was your next question.
