(CNN) - Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman has a new gig - at successor Al Franken's alma mater.
Harvard University's Institute of Politics announced Thursday that the former Republican senator will be part of its latest class of teaching fellows.
Other political luminaries joining Coleman at Harvard as resident or visiting fellows this fall include former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe, former Kerry and Obama advisor Stephanie Cutter, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan.
Good grief ! The best University in the US hiring that jerk ?
CNN? Are you feeling guilty? You actually mentioned a Republican...
He will inject a much-needed dose of conservative thought. This will be very beneficial for the students and the faculty.
wow Harvard must be real hard up. If all the man is capable of is lying why would you think he could even teach period.Unless maybe its a course on lying–then you get the right party .
Great,he can teach foot dragging for dollars.Maybe Rush can go back and get his GED.
i am sure this knucklehead could teach alot about politics ,,, he lost to stuart smalley......looser...
Thank God. Better there than in Washington.
A few token conservatives in a sebastian of progressively liberal ideology. I wouldn't condemn my child there for programming if it were free..
Hide the silverware!
Harvard sinks to a new low. Its not about the quality of education but about dollars. The Institute of Politics now can teach what to do when the American voters (democracy) votes you out of office. You just hang in there, go to court, spend other peoples money to try to skirt democracy in action.
Gee, I guess it's not true that only liberals are allowed in education.
Is this an affirmative action appointment?
Wait...isn't higher education supposed to be full of crazy liberals. Condoleeza returns to academia after serving in the Bush administration and now Coleman goes to Harvard. Hmmm, could we have another lie from the right? Maybe academia is more fair and balanced than Faux News and Limpbaugh would have you believe.
Peggy Noonan?! So maybe it's not really that big a deal.
Good for him!!! I'm no Coleman supporter (he betrayed the Republicans, not to mention betraying Bush!!!).
Norm can teach a non-credit seminar in Frivolous Election Lawsuits. But it should be Pass/Fail, whereby all the students pass for having to put up with Coleman. Norm will give students an extremely valuable education.
A Republican at a Conservative Private University like Harvard, who could imagine such a thing! Must be a Republican conspiracy, Harvard is a "For Profit" Private University, the Liberals should all rise up and demand that Harvard implement a government run program for a free education.
Bean town will be tainted for sure.
Will he teach ethics or Taliban Political Science??
let's hope Mr coleman wont be teaching any classes on how too be a sore loser . he just another GOP out of touch with America's desire to change for our good.
As Woody Allen once said, "Those who can't do, teach."
He can teach them how to screw-up so badly that you can loose to a comedian. I guess there is something to learn from anyone.
Yep, he will teach them how a lawsuit can get you elected, or not!
Why would they want a half-wit like that at Harvard? He is a disgrace to the country, to his party, and to Harvard.
Alright Norm. It's good to see you out of both Washington DC and Minnesota. Will you teach a course on political gamesmanship entitled, "How to be an incumbent, smear your opponent and still lose an election"? Are you going to allow your students to bring in lawyers to pursue never-ending recounts on low test scores? Will you finally perfect a partisan bobble head doll that only nods "yes" to neoconservative bills while always nodding "no" to liberal bills?
