Kenneth Starr, always to be remembered as the independent counsel overseeing the Whitewater investigation that led to the move to impeach President Bill Clinton, has been named president of Baylor University.

Baylor’s Board of Regents announced Starr as their unanimous choice on Monday, concluding a two-year search that started in July 2008 after the university, based in Waco, Texas, fired its last president. Not surprisingly, Starr’s legal connections helped him get the job.
