WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is appointing the woman behind the television series "Scandal," ''Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice" to the Kennedy Center's board of trustees. Shonda Rhimes is a Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy nominee. Her show "Scandal" stars actress Kerry Washington, a major Obama supporter. The White House says Obama is also tapping financier David Rubenstein and executive Alexandra Stanton to the Kennedy Center's board. Stanton hosted a fundraiser that Obama headlined earlier this year. The positions don't require Senate confirmation.
