Notre Dame president rewarded with second term

From the Chicago Tribune:
Notre Dame trustees elect Jenkins to second term

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The Rev. John I. Jenkins, who came under fire for inviting President Barack Obama to the University of Notre Dame campus, has been re-elected to a second five-year term as president of the school.

The trustees also approved a resolution Friday expressing their "respect and full confidence" in Jenkins, saying he has nurtured an environment where "the Catholic faith and intellectual tradition are celebrated and lived."

Jenkins faced widespread criticism last spring from Catholic bishops and anti-abortion activists after inviting Obama to deliver Notre Dame's commencement address and receive an honorary degree.

Opponents objected to Obama's support for abortion rights and embryonic stem-cell research, positions that contradict church teachings.

Jenkins said last month that he planned to travel to Washington in January to take part in an annual anti-abortion march.

There's a nice spin.

Probably couldn't find anyone who wanted the job. Not anyone the board would consider, anyway. So they expressed their full confidence and went on with business as usual.

Who'd want to take over the mess Jenkins created? I'd love to know how much the donations declined.
