So Brokaw did this interview with Obama on June 5th
and he accepted this position with the White House on June 17th
. My question is: when was he approached by the WH for this position? With 28 members on the commission, one assumes that the membership of the commission wasn't put together in a week or so. After all, all the members on the commission would have to have agreed to participate before the list would be made public.
