Member of the Administration?

A press release from Episcopal Church headquarters recently announced that the Presiding Bishop had “joined the Obama administration.” The phrase not be well-chosen, since the Most Rev. Katherine Jefferts Schori is merely serving on an advisory panel with a number of other religious leaders, including the head of the conservative National Association of Evangelicals. She might well have served a similar panel under George W. Bush; in that case, I doubt that she would have wanted to be considered a member of his administration. But perhaps I am looking for political bias that doesn’t exist. —J. Douglas Ousley
