IOP picks Jeanne Shaheen

The IOP has selected its new director, former NH Governor Jeanne Shaheen. You can read the mini story here from the Globe. Shaheen was Governor of NH for two terms and lost when she ran for the Senate in 2002 to John Sununu. She then became the nation chairperson for the Kerry Campaign in the summer of 2003 (after a long and public courtship), rallied support for him in New Hampshire and then became the National Chair for his general election run.

I think Shaheen's a good choice. She's a nice woman (I've met her a few times) and a very moderate Democrat, which will keep the IOP happily innocuous and non-partisan. She seems to be legitimately interested in young people, not in a condescending "aren't you cute!" sort of way. Anyone have any other thoughts?
