Kennedy Institute diversifies its board

The new educational institute named for the late senator Edward M. Kennedy said Tuesday that it has added the first senators and first Republicans to its board, additions that could help calm some tensions within the famous family.

Trent Lott, the Missisippi Republican and former Senate majority leader, has joined the board of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, along with Tom Daschle, a Democrat and former Senate majority leader from South Dakota; Ralph C. Martin II, a Republican and former Suffolk county district attorney; and Stephanie Cutter, a Democratic strategist from Massachusetts who was most recently President Obama’s deputy campaign manager.
