Did Greta Van Susteren’s Husband Have the Best Seat in the House?

As you know by now, Greta Van Susteren invited two Kardashians and a Lohan to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last night. Not surprisingly, Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan (and Keith Olbermann, Barack Obama, Barbara Walters, cable news, Newt Gingrich, and more) made it into Jimmy Kimmel‘s monologue. At one point Kimmel asks Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, “Would you do us a favor? Would you mind driving Lindsay Lohan home? … Make sure you do not run into a goose. Especially a grey goose.”

The man who safely piloted his bird-stricken jet into the frigid Husdon River two years ago, is joining CBS News to talk about all things aviation.

Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, III has been named CBS News Aviation and Safety Expert. Sullenberger will provide analysis of aviation safety and contribute to CBS News broadcasts and platforms across the news division.

“Sully is an American treasure and it is a real thrill to have him on our team at CBS News,” says CBS News Chairman and “60 Minutes” EP Jeff Fager. “I am a huge fan of Sully’s. He is a remarkable person who has a great ability to turn his significant experience into useful insights.

“I am very pleased to join the remarkable team at CBS News and I am eager to contribute to an organization I have long respected for its award-winning reputation of superior reporting,” said Sullenberger, who gave his first interview about US Airways Flight 1549 to Katie Couric for a “60 Minutes” interview in February 2009.
