Congratulations to Kal Penn, who has accepted a position in the White House Office of Public Liaison as a link to Asian-American and Pacific- Islander communities (spoiler alert at link if you haven't watched last Monday's episode of House).

Many of my friends who worked on the Obama campaign came into contact with Penn, who volunteered for Obama, including canvassing in West Virginia (considered a solid McCain state). To a person, they said that Penn was smart, committed and will be a great addition to the Obama administration.
