Jenna Bush Hager sign on as Today show contributor
In the tradition of Meghan McCain, Liz Cheney and other daughters of prominent Republicans who've waded into the media waters, former Jenna Bush Hager will try her luck in broadcast on NBC's "Today," AP .
The 27-year-old teacher at a Baltimore , who has already penned two books, will serve as a once-a-month contributor on topics such as education, Jim Bell, the show's executive producer, told the wire.
Jenna, Jenna, Jenna, NBC? Even though she won’t be talking politics, she had better watch her back over there. NBC is rabidly pro-Obama.

LiMandri announced today that the former Miss California USA is filing a complaint in the Superior Court of California against Miss California USA officials Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, and publicist Roger Neal. The complaint cites damages to Miss Prejean including libel, public disclosure of private facts, religious discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Might as well, that was a hate/hate relationship if ever there was one.
Books and Obama sitting in a tree…
From The New Republic:
"I don't want to sound like I'm bragging," Brooks recently told me, "but usually when I talk to senators, while they may know a policy area better than me, they generally don't know political philosophy better than me. I got the sense he knew both better than me."
That first encounter is still vivid in Brooks's mind. "I remember distinctly an image of--we were sitting on his couches, and I was looking at his pant leg and his perfectly creased pant," Brooks says, “and I'm thinking, a) he's going to be president and b) he'll be a very good president." In the fall of 2006, two days after Obama'sThe Audacity of Hope hit bookstores, Brooks published a glowing Times column. The headline was "Run, Barack, Run."
H/t The Other McCain
No surprise that David Brooks would admire perfectly creased pants. We all know that Mr. Brooks has a very hard time keeping the creases in his pants, since he allows all that inner thigh rubbing during dinner parties.
