This just in...: Obama appoints Jon Bon Jovi to White House Council for Community Solutions
President Obama nominated Jon Bon Jovi to the White House Council for Community Solutions Tuesday. The White House press release heralds the unofficial troubadour of the Democratic party as "Chairman of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the lives of those in need" (it underwrites the construction of affordable housing) -- oh, and by the way, "also the lead singer of the Grammy Award winning group Bon Jovi." But you knew that. His task now: To advise the president on ways to "mobilize citizens" to "solve specific community needs."
