Keep your eye on these Capitol Hill staffers, all of whom were selected for the Spring Congressional Fellowship Program at the Partnership for a Secure America, a centrist, security-minded policy organization here in Washington.
PSA, which is advised by former Democratic national security advisors Zbigniew Brzezinski and Samuel Berger, as well as former GOP Senators Howard Baker and Slade Gorton, has been putting out policy statements on issues ranging from climate change to nonproliferation.
"Over the past two decades destructive partisanship has invaded every level of the policymaking process in Washington, threatening our ability to respond to critical national security and foreign policy challenges," reads a backgrounder on the fellowship program (pdf).
This year, fellows will be able to meet with some pretty senior current and former Obama administration officials, such as former National Security Council chief of staff Mark Lippert, current chief Denis McDonough, and NSC communications director Ben Rhodes.
