Braggin' about former colleague

— Former NBC News Political Director Elizabeth Wilner becomes the second senior hire for the new Peter G. Peterson Foundation, whose mission is to focus public attention on, and promote solutions to the key sustainability challenges that threaten America's future: entitlement, health care, and deficit spending.  Wilner will serve as Director of Public Affairs. The new Foundation's CEO is former US Comptroller General David Walker, whom David Broder recently called "perhaps the most outspoken official in Washington warning of the fiscal train wreck that awaits this country unless it mends its ways."  Broder wrote, "No task is more important to our future."
