Former Gov. Doyle To Be Harvard Fellow

Posted Wednesday, July 11, 2012 --- 6:45 a.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Former two-term Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle will be joining Harvard University's Institute of Politics as a resident fellow this fall.

Harvard says in a release that Doyle and the other fellows will interact with students, lead weekly study groups on a wide variety of issues and participate in the intellectual life of the university community.

Other fellows in addition to Doyle participating in the program include Nina Easton, senior editor of Fortune magazine and political strategist Brett O'Donnell who worked for John McCain's presidential campaign.

Doyle has kept a low profile since he left office in 2011 instead of seeking a third term.

He made rare public comments in support of President Barack Obama's health care law when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld it as being constitutional.
